Government gives green light for volleyball to return

By | 28th July 2020

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


By | 21st March 2020

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.

Please contact Freda Bussey or the relevant coach if you have further questions.

“SEVA Sunday” at Trinity School

By | 7th February 2020

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 considerably.

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.
