Welcome to the Whitefield Volleyball Tournament, the largest (130 teams) and most popular outdoor volleyball event in UK

The 2021 Whitefield Tournament is the weekend of 17 and 18 July - depending on COVID restrictions

The venue is South Bristol Sports Centre, West Town Lane, Bristol, BS14 9EF

Organised by the City of Bristol Volleyball Club, this year marks the 46th event since the tournament was created

The tournament is VERY popular so please enter as early as possible (from 8am Sat 15 May) to avoid dissapointment.

We can confirm that we will be proceeding with this years Tournament on the 17th and 18th July (subject to Government guidelines), with entries opening this Saturday 15th May at 8am.

This year in particular, we are all taking risks when planning ahead and as we get nearer to the event, the tournament (and our club) incur more expenses that we cannot reclaim should the event have to be cancelled. We also have a minimum number of teams that we will need to enter in order to make the event financially viable.
With this in mind, we are asking you to share some of the risk with us this year. In the event that we have to cancel the tournament for any reason, every team that has entered will be offered the option to either roll over their team entry to 2022 with a guaranteed place or have a refund of the entry fee, minus the paypal fee and 20% (£20 in total). Our standard no refund policy will still apply if you withdraw your team from the event.
I know you are all really keen to get your place and play this year, and we know that some of the popular divisions fill really quickly on a normal year, so dont leave it too late!
Method of Payment: Credit or Debit card via PayPal – you don’t need a PayPal account, just a payment card
We will as always, keep you updated with any changes as soon as we can.

Situation at the moment...

The government decision to delay coming out of lockdown till 19th July, has made it more difficult to proceed with the tournament on our planned weekend 17/18 July.
We are awaiting further guidance from Volleyball England about whether it is possible to run the tournament before lockdown ends (under current tier 3 guidelines). Plus investigating the possibility of a rearranged date in August, having checked the Volleyball England diary to avoid other events.
We will notify people later in the week, or as soon as we possibly can.
We are doing our utmost to host an event, looking into all the things needed to do so.
When we know whether we can or can't, we will let everyone know what happens next. Please be patient as we work through everything this week and we will answer any queries once we know the options available.
Thank you
The Committee 15/6/21
