A large VBVA crew may have been in Sydney over the Labor Day long weekend, but there were still a number of academy players on show at round 9 of the Vic Beach Tour held on South Melbourne beach.
They came back from a defeat in the pool rounds against tour veterans Longley/Pocock, to beat the same opposition in the final.
Among them was AA winner Alba, playing alongside 2017 Australian U17s representative Nicola. They came back from a defeat in the pool rounds against tour veterans Longley/Pocock, to beat the same opposition in the final.
A fantastic achievement that was matched in the ‘A’ division by VBVA ‘warrior’ Nicole – step/mum to a whole bunch of VBVA T3 representatives. Nicole was partnered by former VBVA player Dee Tomic.
In the other divisions, Zeb and partner Mitch were knocked out in the AA quarters by eventual winners, the Hope brothers; and 12yo T2 prodigy Will won his first game… against twin brother Sam in the B men’s division.
Fantastic effort all-round crew!
