Only three schools – English River, Anse Royale and Pointe Larue – took part in the girls’ tournament, while the boys’ competition featured four schools. They were English River, Pointe Larue, Anse Royale and Plaisance.

The girls’ tournament started with a league, before the top two met each other in the final. With two wins, Pointe Larue topped the group, ahead of Anse Royale who registered a win and a loss. In the final, Pointe Larue once again proved to be the better side with a 2-0 (25-13, 24-4) win to grab the title.

In the boys’ group, which was played on a league basis, Plaisance and Anse Royale were placed in the same pool, while the second pool featured English River and Pointe Larue.

Plaisance won their match 2-0 (25-25, 25-23) against Anse Royale to finish as pool leaders, while Pointe Larue defeated English River 2-1 to win the other group. The set scores were 25-14, 19-25 and 15-10.

In the semi-final, which was played on cross knock-out basis, Anse Royale beat Pointe Larue 2-1 (18-25, 25-21, 15-11), while in the second semi-final, Plaisance were disqualified after fielding an over-aged player.

In the final, English River won the first set 25-23, before Anse Royale bounced back to win the second set 25-21, levelling the match at one set apiece. More determined in the third and decisive set, English River came out stronger to win it 15-11 and the match 3-1.

The winners received their trophy from Roy Dijoux of the SVF.
