Referees are an extremely crucial element in the development of indoor volleyball, beach volleyball and sitting volleyball throughout the country at all levels. Refereeing is challenging, rewarding and above all, great fun. 

Becoming a match official provides you with an array of opportunities - making new and lasting friends, travelling to new locations, and being a part of some world-class, hotly-contested volleyball action are but a handful of many. Referees are not only the closest onlookers to the enthralling action happening during a match, but also yield the highest authority on the court. With no two matches being alike, every match presents you with fresh, new challenges that equip you with skills, such as confidence and decisiveness, that are applicable in everyday life.

This section of the Volleyball England website is designed to assist not only Volleyball England referees in each branch of the sport but also scorers, line judges, coaches, club members, organisers and anyone interested in the promotion and development of the game.
