As UCCW captain, one of the major goals is to create a good team spirit and atmosphere, which has always characterised our team. This year we welcomed 9 new players who are settling in well with our long-time players, on and off the volleyball court (see our Halloween-themed training!): this allows trainings to be both enjoyable and a chance for everyone to learn from one another. Since the beginning of the season the focus has been on improving our technical skills (also thanks to our brilliant coaches), enjoying volleyball, and putting together a supportive and friendly group of talented players. Our team had a strong start to the 22-23 season with two wins out of two games played, respectively against Leicester and Nottingham, who are currently leading the league. More exciting matches in the Midlands league are scheduled for the rest of the season and we hope to keep up the good work and represent Cambridge sports at the best of our abilities. After being promoted to Tier 2 of BUCS at the end of last season the expectation for this year is definitely to do well in the new league and achieve a good position in the top end of the table. Moreover, we hope to replicate the success of last year Varsity game against Oxford, where we managed to take home a hard-earned 3-2 win!
