www.volleyballdorset.co.uk has been created for use both by our players and anyone wishing to find out more about local volleyball.


Originally formed over 40 years ago as the Poole & District Volleyball Association, Volleyball Dorset is now the umbrella organisation for all volleyball in Dorset and surrounding areas that wishes to affiliate to Volleyball England (the ruling body for volleyball in England) and the South-West Volleyball Association. Activities covered include both indoor and outdoor (beach + grass) volleyball, from beginner to international, aged from 8 years to over 60.

We run coaches and referees award courses as and when there is demand.

Activities that our clubs run include :

Junior development for ages 8 to 16 (Wessex)
Junior performance for ages 13 to 18 (Wessex)
Open adult development sessions (Poole Panthers, Sandbanks, Spike Monkeys, Falcons, Pars)
Adult performance via two men’s + two women’s National League teams (Wessex, supported by Bournemouth University)
Adult beach volleyball league at Boscombe Beach (Spike Monkeys)
Sandbanks Beach Volleyball Festival – 26 competitions (including the British Open and the British Junior Championships), and almost 300 teams (Wessex)
British Students Beach Volleyball Championships (Bournemouth University)

To Sportset for their support for Volleyball Dorset
To all those who help run the league
To all the committee members and others who give their time to enable you to play volleyball
To you for reading this far. Have an enjoyable season.
