Players for the Ripley Wolves held the inaugural Ripley Wolves Indoor Beach Volleyball tournament, held Aug. 31 and Sept. 1.

The weekend of volleyball was a great success, with 20 teams competing for bragging rights in five divisions. With teams guaranteed six games – and playing eight if they reached a final – there was no shortage of volleyball (and beer garden!) action for participants.

The Wolves thank all the teams who made the tournament such a success, the volunteers who helped with set-up, bartending and tear-down, Enbridge for their sponsorship, and Tom and Pauline from Kempton Construction for their continuing support of the Ripley Wolves. Without all of these people, this weekend would not have been possible!

The Wolves have now traded their sandals for skates and are practicing at rinks across the area. The regular season opens Oct. 5 in Shallow Lake, with the home opener going Oct. 12 against those same Crushers.
