AS PART of their preparations for next year's NatWest Island Games in Bermuda, the Guernsey volleyball teams headed to a tournament at the University of East Anglia.

Using contacts from alumni Ross Gledhill, both the EI Sturdza-sponsored women's and men's teams were entered into a day of matches against current university teams and the surrounding areas.

The weekend started with a friendly warm-up match against current students which allowed the squads to familiarise themselves with the playing surface and hall layout.

With multiple markings on the floor, it took a little time to find their rhythm and adjust to the environment.

Both teams gave a good account of themselves with the women beating the mash-up side comfortably.

The men encountered stronger opposition, which gave them a taste of what was to come the following day.
