Summer 2014

Su Ragazzi at the Commie Games……..

As part of the Commonwealth Games, Su Ragazzi were asked to be part of the 'live' site at Glasgow Green, showcasing all that is good about sport and culture in Glasgow. Naturally, Su Ragazzi accepted this invitation to show to the crowds what our club has to offer.

 

After negotiating our way to Glasgow Green, we set up a court in the sporting area of the site. No sooner was the court set up when our band of volunteers began to encourage the shy onlookers onto the court for a game. Before long, our court was full and queues building.

 

The day carried on this way right until the end. Masses of people with huge smiles came along, played some volleyball, found out a little more about the club and found out what a wonderful sport it is we play.

 

It turned out to be a huge success helped in no part by the glorious sunshine. There were a few red faces by the end!!

 

The club couldn't have achieved this without all the players who turned out to help out, some even coming after work to give us a boost. Our thanks go to the players for all their help.

The clubs involvement didn't stop there. Over at Pirie Park Primary School, our home training venue, another group of enthusiastic club members ran taster sessions for kids to come along and try some volleyball. Over 40 kids registered for the opportunity. Again, our thanks have to be given to the players for giving up their time.
