RAF Volleyball In Double Success

Both the men's and women's Inter Services titles were won by the Royal Air Force.

The RAF have done the double at the Inter Services Volleyball Championships.

The men have lost just one game in the last 36 years and continued that record to lift the trophy.

The women won their first title in eight years after being inspired by their new captain Yasmin Kaashoek.

The first game of the tournament was the RAF men’s test against the Army. A straight three sets victory meant a win against the Navy would seal the title.

The Senior Service went into the final game with the same situation after beating the Army by three sets to one.

In the third match, the RAF’s raced into a two-set lead and, despite some Navy fightback, they held on for a victory by three sets to one.

In the women’s tournament, the first match was between the RAF and the Army on Court 2.

The Royal Air Force were struggling at two sets to one down, but a remarkable comeback meant they won the match three sets to two.

The Army bounced back with a win against the Navy in game two. It was a comfortable victory by three sets, but the RAF won the title in the final match.

They were overwhelming favourites against the Senior Service and a three-set victory crowned the RAF Women as champions.
