National Pride

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 info@stockportvolleyball.com in the first instance.  Yours in #volleyball.

We did it! #stockportvolleyball

Tonight saw the first ever session of Stockport Volleyball Club.  This was only made possible through the dedication and encouragement of Volleyball England and especially our liaison, Steve Kerr.  We weren’t overwhelmed by numbers but all the players (enough for two teams) left totally satisfied and on a mission to let their friends know just how much volleyball with ‘The S’PORT’ can be.  Special thanks also to The Seashell Trust, Greater Sport, Life Leisure and Sportivate.  Next session at 7.00pm on Tuesday 17th November 2015 at The Seashell Trust.  New members most welcome even if you’ve never played before – you’ll be made most welcome.
