KWADUKUZA Volleyball Association (KDVA) will host the annual Eze’s Electrical-sponsored year-end knock-out tournament which gets under way on Tuesday, 17 November culminating in the final on 24 November.

KDVA president, Isaac Abraham expressed thanked Ronnie Chinnsamy (CEO of Eze’s Electrical) for his R10 000 sponsorship towards the Premier League (R5 000) and year-end knockout tournament (R5 000).

Ten teams comprising of Grove End, KSST, Manor, Warriors Sport, Randsons, Sunbrook, Darnall United­, Cool Leaders, Frendz and Manor Old Boys will be vying for honours in the year-end knock-out tournament.

Matches will be played on a knockout basis with all first round losers advancing to the plate section of the tournament.
Prize money will be given to all teams participating in the tournament with the winner waltzing away R1 500 richer and the runner-up pocketing R1 000.

The plate section winner will earn R600 and the runner-up set to collect R500.
Entry is R300 per team which must be paid prior to the first match which gets under way on Tuesday, 17 November.

At the draws held on Wednesday night at The Quartz Conference Centre, Manor Volleyball Club were grinning from ear to ear after being drawn against rookies, Frendz in the first round. Adhil Khan’s charges are expected to take a power of beating before locking horns with Cool Leaders in the second round.

The acid test looms for Manor in the semis where they are expected to meet old foes KSST, who should prove too strong for Randsons. Former league champions KSST will be hoping to finish the season on a high note and volleyball enthusiasts can look forward to an adrenaline-pumping clash semi-final between KSST and Manor which is set to take place on 24 November.

In the bottom half of the draws the unbeaten Grove End outfit are expected to cruise into the final without working up a sweat. On paper it looks like a Manor and Grove End final, but remember you write off KSST at your peril.

Meanwhile, there were mixed fortunes for Darnall United in their KDVA Division One League double header clash played on Thursday night. They went down 2-1 (25-23; 23-25; 15-11) to newly crowned champions Sunbrook before hammering Frendz in straight sets (25-17: 25-21).

KSST walloped Manor 2-0 (26-24; 25-17) in the KDVA Premier League and Warriors beat Randsons (25-21; 15-25; 15-5).
