“I’m going to be very, very sore on Monday night,” he said.

Bourke’s side, the South West Pirates, face a hectic schedule at their home tournament this weekend, playing four games tomorrow and two games on Sunday, plus a final if they qualify.

This weekend is the second time Bourke has represented Warrnambool Volleyball Association in the carnival, which will welcome a record 73 teams to the Arc.

Bourke, 21, never planned to take up the sport.

“About five years ago I went to watch a mate and they didn’t have enough numbers for training, so they wanted me to have a hit,” he said.

“Then I kept going back.

“It was difficult to try and pick up at first because there’s a lot of skill involved and just learning all the rotations and stuff, but it got a bit easier as I went on.”

The left-handed power hitter believes the Pirates have compiled a strong team for the division two men’s competition this weekend.

“We’ve got a few young ones and then three or four very experienced players, like Greg Best and Brad Hunt,” he said.

“We’ve been training every Thursday night for the last six or seven weeks.

“I’m just hoping we can play as good as we did in Horsham last year.”

Bourke was part of the triumphant Warrnambool team which claimed the reserves men’s title at the Horsham tournament in November.

He enjoys the challenge of playing against quality opposition during tournaments.

“The standard’s a lot higher because a lot of the teams that you’re playing against play together during the week,” he said.

“Our players are from all different teams.”

Warrnambool will also field sides in men’s division four and women’s division two and three competitions this weekend. Teams from Victoria, South Australia, New South Wales and Tasmania will contest the tournament, which has five divisions.

The men’s honours division has received a boost in entries, with 14 teams involved, including two from the Australian Institute of Sport.

Tournament director Suzi Fish expects the quality of volleyball to be the highest in several years.

The tournament is one of the longest-running in regional Australia and offers more than $6500 in prizes and trophies.
