East Midlands Volleyball Association
We are the regional body that administers, develops and encourages volleyball in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire in conjunction with each county association.
One of our other aims is to increase volleyball participation in education and increase the number of Junior clubs which will feed through to our regional squads which compete at a national level. So if you are a pupil, teacher or junior club leader and would like some help and information on how to introduce volleyball into your environment please contact us.

Volleyball England is in the privileged position of being the National Governing Body in England for one of the World’s most popular and diverse team sports, giving it a potential market reach that is the envy of many other sports. With the legacy from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, together with our 420 affiliated clubs we have a unique opportunity to raise the profile and capitalise on the growing demand to play volleyball in all its forms during the next four years.
As a valued member currently active in an area we want to specifically work in as part of our 2013-17 Whole Sport Plan we would like to invite you to our engagement event to be held at SportPark, Loughborough University , 3 Oakwood Drive , Loughborough, Leicestershire , LE11 3QF on Wednesday 17th April at 7pm.
The event will be an opportunity for you to understand the plans moving forward and hopefully how these can benefit you and your volleyball activity in the future. It will also be a great chance for us to hear what is going well in the area and understand the issues that are facing grassroots volleyball.
The full agenda for the day and the background information we have on the area will be circulated to you in advance of the meeting and all follow up information shortly after the event.
