Six Canada West preseason volleyball matches on tap for the gym at UBC Okanagan this weekend. Matches start Thursday night.
The UBC Okanagan men's volleyball team will host an invitational tournament, with three teams visiting to kick off their pre-seasons.
The UBC Okanagan Invitational will see the men's teams from Thompson Rivers University, Mount Royal University, and the University of Saskatchewan participating over three days, from Thursday, September 29 through Saturday, October 1, in the UBC Okanagan gymnasium.
Of the four teams, the UBC Okanagan Heat are alone in having participated in other exhibition matches so far this year. They started their pre-season last weekend, when they traveled to Edmonton to play in the SofaLand Classic, hosted by the University of Alberta. The Heat played five matches over three days, from Thursday, September 22 through Saturday, September 24. Their opponents in the exhibition tournament were the University of Alberta, Lakeland College, McMaster University, Ambrose College, and the University of Calgary.
