Leicestershire volleyball is located in the centre of east Midlands which means as a result each year we keep getting larger.
This is because Leicestershire Volleyball League also attracts clubs from Staffordshire, Warwickshire and the West Midlands
Consequently the league currently contains 15 teams and promotes volleyball across the county.
With so many clubs in the county it is easy to locate a recreational or social volleyball group and some have a junior section too. There is also the opportunity to train to a competitive level with Regional or National League (NVL) teams.
Furthermore, Leicestershire volleyball association wants to keep you up to date with what is going on. So, are you a social group in the Leics area and would like more members? Or are you thinking of starting a group just get in contact and let us know.
Finally, if you have any volleyball news, events or anything else related just get in touch.
