2020 Tas State League

The Tasmanian Volleyball State League is the premier club-based competition in Tasmania.

FORMAT:

Due to significant changes in both the community and sporting landscapes, in response to COVID-19, it was not possible to run the 2020 State League in its "normal" timeslot over June-August. However, we were very fortunate in Tasmania to offer a revised format in September-October.

TEAMS:

In 2020 we welcomed back both defending champions Van Diemens Volleyball Club (men and women), as well as, Phoenix Volleyball Club (men), Zuno Volleyball Club (women), Launceston United (women) and Launceston Volleyball Club (men).

For the first time in many years we were extrememly excited to have representation from the Devonport Volleyball Association included in our State League fixture (both men and women). We were also fortunate to have the 2018 Women's Champion rejoin the competition (Boss Volleyball Club).

As in previous years we extended a warm welcome to the Tasmanian State Under 17s (women) who used this competition to further their development, after limited opportunity to travel for interstate competition in 2020. 

SCHEDULE:

Round 1: South - 5/6 September - Moonah Sports Centre 
Round 2: North West - 3/4 October - East Devonport Recreation Centre
Finals: South - Saturday 31 October - Moonah Sports Centre

FINALS:

After two awesome weekends of competition in Moonah and East Devonport, the finalists battled it out for State League victory on 31 October. Unfortunately there weren't any fairy-tale endings for the State Under 17s, Zuno or Devonport Raptors - as they were all defeated by their higher ranked opponents in their respective preliminary finals.

In the match of the day, between the past two State League women's champions, it went down to the wire in an epic 5 set match that had the crowd on the edge of their seats. After splitting results against each other 1-all in the preliminary rounds it was the Van Diemens women who would win the decider and be crowned the 2020 Champions. (MVP: Erica Rice)

Unfortunately for the Phoenix men, they could not overcome the undefeated Van Diemens men in their final. In one of the most dominant seasons to date the Van Diemens men defended their title in straight sets, while only dropping 3 sets all season. (MVP: Joshua Thorpe)

Congratulations to all competing clubs, we look forward to 2021 being even more awesome!
