Sports Calendar: Spike some tickets for the volley finals!

Spike it! Don’t joust, just finish the attack. Let’s dig one out and use the five-one to get the kill.”

Sounds like something taken out of ‘Platoon’. But actually, it’s volleyball jargon, which apparently sounds rather aggressive.

There is ample opportunity to learn more warzone-ish sounding terms, as well as enjoy the best volleyball Denmark has to offer, at the deciding Danish Championship finale at Gentofte Sportspark this Saturday.

Golden set potential
The ladies are up first at 14:00, with Holte trying to overcome a 0-3 first leg loss to Brøndby, while Gentofte will be aiming to bounce back from a 1-3 defeat against Marienlyst at 16:00.

Should Holte or Gentofte manage to win, a deciding 25-point golden set will be played.

Gentofte and Marienlyst both finished with records of 13-1 in the regular season. While Brøndby could cap an undefeated season should they win the ladies.
Tickets will be available at the door. They cost 75 kroner for adults, while under-18s can get in for free.
