Ipswich growing the volleyball community with new Referees

Ipswich VC had 3 club members travel to Chelmsford with the hope to gain their level 4 refereeing qualification on Saturday 25th November 2017.

The course was tutored by Sebastian Widlarz who is the number 2 referee in English volleyball and has refereed at international level and now even introduced new rules and protocols to the sport.

Lukas Kundrotas, Everita Sokolova and Kev Abbott attended from Ipswich, along with 13 people from Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Essex. Other Suffolk clubs had players attending also included fellow Ipswich Club Ipswich Ravens and Newmarket.

All 3 Ipswich players passed their referee exam and now hold their level 4 qualification, they join only a handful of volleyball players in Suffolk to currently hold that qualification.
