England Seniors

England Senior

Volleyball England have been successful in accessing funding from Sport England which allowed a programme to commence in Summer 2016 with a series of training camps and competitions for the England senior squads. As part of the programme, an England senior men's team was selected and the squad had a chance to compete in the 2017 CEV European Championships, beginning with first round qualifications in Norway. Although the team failed to qualify, they showed promise as they beat Hungary 3-1 (25-19, 22-25, 25-19, 25-11).

In July 2016, an England Senior women's squad was announced ahead of the European Global Challenge in Croatia.
