Congratulations to the large number of Volleyball boys who represented Canterbury North or Canterbury South in the recent Sentinel Tournament held at Pioneer Stadium. Teams were selected following a series of trials. The team you were available to trial for was based on your geographic location of where you live in Canterbury. Teams battled it out in Junior, Senior and Open levels in both male and female competitions to find the dominant side of Canterbury.

Canterbury South won this Tournament by two sets of which Tasipale Valavala was asked to accept the award on behalf of all of the South Teams.
