Confirmation from Global VX. The 2020 V2 World Cup in Hong Kong has been postponed, therefore Scotland will no longer be hosting the 2021 World Cup but will be hosting the 2022 World Cup. The whole schedule has been moved back 12 month due to the Covid-19 Pandemic
Unfortunately, at the last minute, Jane was unable to attend the OSS Summit at Tynecastle so massive thanks to Paul Hildreth and Caroline Pritchard-Dale who represented us as the official, authorised and recognised NGB VX Scotland. They had a great time, met some fantastic people and made some great connections. This was a great step forward for us as we rebuild VX in Scotland ahead of the 2021 V2 World Cup which we are due to host.
fantastic news - we have been invited to present VX at a major conference in November. This is great news ahead of us hosting the 2021 V2 World Cup! Watch this space ...
we hear this was an amazing event. Apparently it was quite simply the best World Cup yet - and we are delighted that Scotland was represented. Despite carrying an ankle injury Iona gained a very creditable ranking of 12th in a large, highly talented field. We're very proud of her. She did Scotland proud. Massive congratulations Iona from all of us here at VX Scotland. You've put Scotland back on the VX map!
The World Cup is shaping up to be a great event. We are delighted that Scotland has an entry this year again and are desperately hoping that Iona is fully recovered.
DISASTER!! As we approach the World Cup we have just heard from Iona that she has injured her ankle in a freak accident while out walking. She can't train at the moment but is desperate and determined to be fit enough to compete in the World Cup. We have everything crossed for her
lots of interest in VX at the conference. We hope this helps us to fire up VX in Scotland again. Don't forget - we have the 2021 World Cup here and would love to have strong Scottish representation
Looking forward to a big meeting with Global VX on Monday. From there, Global VX will be heading over to Stirling University for the conference on the Role of The role of sport and physical activity in Scotland. Hopefully be able to talk to lots of people about the benefits of VX and hopefully another step forward in revitalising VX in Scotland
The World Cup is a major event and we are delighted that Scotland will be represented again this year as Iona competes in the seniors, but we would dearly love to see more Scottish players enjoying the competitive opportunities offered by the VX family. The standards are getting higher and higher, new techniques and tactics are being developed, and as the sport grows and develops, we feel Scotland should be taking a leading part in this.
Good luck to Hannah today - she's going to be attending the England trials. Don't panic - she's not trying to get into the England squad! As the England Squad invited her and Iona to their sessions she simply fancied the chance to test herself. It's all good experience and we are delighted with what she brings back from the sessions. Commiserations to Iona who got injured while fell-walking recently and can't attend
Big thank you to the England VX squad who will be welcoming two Scottish players, Iona and Hannah, to participate in their training session today. We love the sharing culture of VX and hope the two girls enjoy the session
We now have our own Twitter account @VXNGB - or search VX Scotland NGB
We are delighted to announce that VX Scotland will be hosting the 2021 V2 World Cup. Preparations are already under way
we will at last have Scottish representation in the V2 World Cup again. Iona Freeborn will be representing Scotland in the 2019 V2 World Cup. We are delighted that Scotland will again be part of VX's premier event
We had a very positive meeting with some people who have contacts in Scottish Councils. This was stage 1 of our regeneration of VX in Scotland.
This was followed by a visit from Global VX and more very positive meetings. Stage 2 of our regeneration of VX in Scotland. More to come in the near future. watch this space!
