The Game Plan

Launched in September 2020, The Game Plan is Volleyball England's ambitious new 10-year strategy, which represents a shift in direction. As with any National Governing Body, we have a responsibility to lead the continued development of the sport. However, to achieve this, we want to work more collaboratively with our clubs and members.

At the heart of 'The Game Plan' are three new priorities: 

Volleyball For Life - We aim to better understand, articulate and promote the opportunities that volleyball provides for anyone, at any stage of their life.

Get. Keep. Grow. - We will look to strengthen the English volleyball club structure by working hand in hand with clubs to help them achieve their ambitions.

An Ace Service - We will work collaboratively to deliver and continuously improve the products and services that most benefit our clubs and the wider volleyball community, while also ensuring they provider healthy revenue streams that enable reinvestment in the sport.

Rather than trying to lead solely from the front, we want to work alongside the network of clubs who continue to deliver an excellent volleyball experience in sports halls and on beaches across the country, and we intend to listen more to what it is that they want from us.

Our previous strategy was set to run until 2021. However, recent developments, most notably the shifting landscape for how NGBs are funded, have prompted us to revisit our strategy a year early.

Behind the scenes

Shortly after announcing this new strategy, we released a series of videos to explain how the strategy came about and what each priority means. Click the links below to watch:
