World Championship

Volfsball World Cup

The highlight of the sporting calendar arrived just as the sun burst from the clouds. Sunday June 5th, 364 days since the very first competitive game of Volfsball and now five teams were to contest the greatest of all sporting prizes, the World Cup. The Supermoons, Choppers, Kongs, Choke Hazard and Snakehips made up a very even field. This was also to be the debut of the new stand made from fiberglass by chief Volfsball engineer, Alan Larwood.

The teams would all play each other in a round robin with the top two in the table to meet in the final.

It was a fantastic day for sport. The Moons, Choke Hazard, Kongs and Snakehips were all in contention for the final until the very last games. Bystanders witnessed the sort of raw athleticism real sportsmen have to take drugs to achieve.
