FINALS:

After three awesome weekends of competition in Moonah, Kingston and East Devonport, the finalists battled it out for State League victory on 14 August. Unfortunately, there weren't any fairy-tale endings for the Vikings Women, Zuno Women or LVC Hitmen - as they were all defeated by their higher ranked opponents in their respective preliminary finals.

Despite finishing minor premiers and holding the advantage in the head-to-head 2-1 for the season, the UTAS women could not overcome the Van Diemens women in their first State League final since 2010. In contrast, it was the experience of the Van Diemens women, playing in their 12th consecutive State League final, that saw them clinch the opening two sets by the slimmest of margins and hold off a late comeback to win in straight sets and claim their third championship in a row. (MVP: Erica Rice - VDVC)

In the match of the day, it went down to the wire in an epic 5 set match that had the crowd on the edge of their seats. The Vikings men went into the grand final as the early favourites, after finishing minor premiers, thanks to a narrow victory over their finalists in the last round of preliminary matches. After racing away with the first 2 sets it looked like the Vikings men were on their way to an emphatic victory against the two-time defending champions. However, the Van Diemens men had other ideas, as they survived an intense third set and used that momentum to win the fourth set and send the match to a decider. There was absolutely nothing separating the two teams in the 5th set, in the end, it was the Vikings men who stayed more aggressive with their service pressure and they continued to defend the court brilliantly to win the last 3 points of the match and claim their first State League title. (MVP: Callum Flude - VDVC)

Congratulations to all competing clubs, we look forward to 2022.
