The Bermuda men's and women's volleyball squads have been named for the USA Volleyball Open National Championships in Dallas, Texas, next weekend.

The women's team are continuing on the momentum built at the Bermuda Open last month. This will be the first time this group of players has competed in the US Open.

“We are excited to hit the court in Dallas and see the results of our hard work in training,” women's head coach Elisabeth Rae said. “A lot of time & effort have gone into our preparation”. The team will be lead by captain Khianda Pearman Watson and vice-captain Sophia Sontag.

This men's team consists predominantly of players who have worked their way up through the ranks of the Bermuda Volleyball Association's junior national team programme through the years. The captains are Eron Woods and Robert Saraiva.

“The team has been training for several months and is looking forward to see how we stack up at a major tournament like the US Open,” men's head coach Bill Bucci said. “This season team is well balanced and is one of the most cohesive and hard-working teams the programme has ever produced.”

The BVA will be attempting to live-stream matches on their Facebook page.
