It’s the news we’ve all been waiting for! 😁
🎉 Volleyball England is delighted to announce that the Government has given the green light for competitive indoor volleyball, beach volleyball and outdoor 6v6 volleyball to return 🎉
Crucially, competitions should only resume once the necessary risk assessments and safety plans are in place and when organisers are confident that Government, venue and Volleyball England advice can be followed.
Detailed guidance documents for 6v6 indoor, 2v2 beach and 6v6 outdoor volleyball can be read in full on this web page
In line with Government, Health England and Volleyball England advice, SEVA has made the decision to suspend all activities until May 2020.
With the outbreak of COVID-19 coronavirus set to worsen in the weeks ahead, these decisions have been taken with the health and safety of our members, their friends and families and the wider community in mind. We understand these decisions will result in inconvenience and disappointment to players, coaches, officials, volunteers and supporters but it is our duty to protect everyone associated with our sport.
This means all training camps for the inter-regional competitions are cancelled until further notice.

A big thank you to Sue and her helpers for organizing the
Berkshire leg of the SEVA U-14 Grand Prix Sunday afternoon. Berkshire is one of
the more progressive counties when it comes to getting youth involvement in our
sport, and Sue’s club, as well at the folks at South Bucks, have made
substantial contributions to the effort. Several other Berkshire clubs have
active youth sections which have not yet been present at this series. It would
be wonderful to see them also become involved in the regional programme, share their
ideas about youth programmes, and display the talent they are developing.
The Berkshire leg went smoothly, we saw some new
participants in the series, and learned a bit more about how to make it a
permanent part of the volleyball scene in the South East Region next year
and beyond. One idea already shared with Lewis Howell (whose Kent team
continued to improve its performance, and also to bring in new players) is that
a notice board of announcements for youth events in SEVA counties and clubs could
be posted at each leg. These events are proving a great vehicle for
getting word out about volleyball activities in the region, and it’s becoming
clear that better public communications will help our regional efforts
One definitely, and hopefully two, more legs in the SEVA
U-14 series will be held this season. Kent hosts its leg in late April, and an
announcement should be forthcoming soon to provide details. We are awaiting
formal confirmation from Sussex as to whether it will host an event, and will
make an announcement as soon as that is received.
See below the dates for SE junior training in 2020. Pass these details onto any junior players in your club or county.
Please check the times as they may vary from session to session
Subscriptions are £6 per session.
