It has been with great pleasure that Stockport Volleyball Club (‘the S’PORT) has been accepted into the National Volleyball League (NVL). From a standing start two years ago, we now compete against the elite in the National League Division 3 North.
The delay is posting is because the process of application has not been straightforward with some stakeholders , outwith the Club, attempting to undermine, our progressive young club. To date the successes have been primarily at junior level, but now, ‘on the big stage’, our adult players will simply give it their best shots.
The proposed venue for this completion will be Life Leisure Priestnall that is currently progressing plans so that equipment and line markings as per FIVB court design are incorporated.
With acceptance to NVL the S’PORT enters automatically the Cup – a competition which has proven to be very popular and gives clubs from non-NVL and lower-NVL divisions the opportunity to pit their wits against the Super 8 sides!
Finally, we also have applied to enter the Yorkshire Series ‘Beach Volleyball’ where Coach Rafal and Pawel will show the Stockport-skills on sand.
Anyone interested in playing at whatever level from beginner to elite, please do check our website and contact firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance. Yours in #volleyball.
