Bedford School’s A and B Beach Volleyball teams put in a terrific performance at the National Independent Schools’ Beach Volleyball Tournament, hosted by Brighton College earlier this term.
The tournament marked an impressive end to an enjoyable term of sport. Seven schools and 12 teams competed on the sand courts in blistering heat, each playing 12 games. Bedford School’s A team, captained by Lower Sixth Former Alfie Elston, and the B team, captained by Upper Sixth Former Ben Wilshaw-Quinn, demonstrated their skill, fantastic teamwork and sportsmanship in all matches.
The A team highlights were winning against Sevenoaks (12-11) and one of the Epsom sides (17-12) and winning their playoff against Reeds – a team they had drawn against in the pool stages. The B team put in an excellent performance against Leys, winning 14-9 and LAE 15-13. The boys were a credit to the school.
