This year will mark the 28th JUVO VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT and it will be the 17th time it will have taken place at the prestigious Brentwood Leisure Centre.
JUVO (Junior Volleyball) is the name of the outdoor Junior Volleyball Tournament founded by Tony Pennock in 1987. It started life at Chase Cross School in Colliers Row. All taking place indoors in one sports hall and one gymnasium, some 33 teams participated from 17 schools in age groups u15 boys and girls, u17 girls and u19 boys. In 1991, the tournament moved to Redden Court School as more space was required and changed to outdoors on grass. In 1999, it moved again to the Brentwood Leisure Centre where it has been ever since. It enjoyed its 18th birthday in June 2004 when over 100 teams competed in the bright sun on the fields surrounding the Brentwood Leisure Centre. Since 2007, it has been part of Volleyball England's ‘Lets Play Volleyball’ Tournament Series.
In June 2012, Tony Pennock decided to hang up his organising hat after so many years organising JUVO and the Tournament has now been entrusted onto Rees Warren & Essex Volleyball Association to continue his fine work on this prestigious Junior Volleyball Tournament.
JUVO is one of the largest Junior Volleyball Tournaments of its kind in the Country. It caters from varying age groups to reflect demand, often from under 11 year olds up to 18 and attracts teams from throughout the Eastern Region, London and beyond.
JUVO will once again take place outdoors on the surroundings fields and beach courts at The Brentwood Leisure Centre.
As in previous years it is hoped that a number of Senior Volleyball Members will be available on the day to act as Referees and Court Managers to enable Coaches to concentrate on their teams.
JUVO is scheduled to start play at 10:00am and to finish around 16:00pm when medals and trophies will be presented to the winners and runners-up in each event.
Please be aware that times may vary dependent upon weather conditions and the length of games.
