VSA has suspended the club and its players, pending an investigation, for participating in a tournament that was hosted by the Johannesburg Volleyball Union at Wits University earlier this month.
The sport’s constitution states that a club cannot play in a tournament outside its home province without the permission of the regional and provincial bodies.
The players in question met eThekwini Volleyball officials last week and admitted that a male and female team participated in the competition but played under the name of a social team, “Predators”.
VSA spokesperson Donovan Nair said: “It is deceit. They changed their name to play in the tournament.”
