Canterbury Volleyball Clubs

Indoor Volleyball is a winter sport (with the exception of the Secondary Schools competition, where athletes play for their schools through the summer terms).  

Trials for clubs (Secondary school age to adult) traditionally take place in April each year.  It is best to contact clubs leading into their trials (February - March), as Contacts for Clubs are not likely to be monitored through the Summer months.
