Volleyball squad prove too strong for rivals

The University of East London’s women’s volleyball team once again proved their aspirations for promotion to the BUCS Premier League.

The UEL squad continued their dominance of the South East 1A League with a convincing three-set win over Kent at SportsDock.

The home team wrapped up the set 25-2 and started the second set very well again, leading 16-3, and closing it quickly at 25-4.
