Introducing VolleyChat, our new video series for lockdown

To keep the community entertained during lockdown, Volleyball England is launching VolleyChat, a weekly video series that’ll explore the back stories of some familiar faces from the Volleyball Family.

Beginning on Thursday, 5th November, episodes will be broadcast on our Facebook page and consist of three segments: an interview with whoever is in the spotlight; the chance for that person to share some expertise on one of their specialist areas; and the opportunity for members of the community to have their questions answered.

First up is beach volleyball trailblazer and Hall of Fame member Denise Austin, who's going to talk about the transition from indoor to beach volleyball.

Denise has won just about every domestic beach volleyball title since she first started playing in the ‘80s. Still an active player on the UK Beach Tour circuit, one of Denise’s biggest passions is now coaching. She has authored a book on the beach game, plays a key role in the National Junior Beach Programme and has led more than 100 beach training camps at home and abroad.

If you would like to ask Denise a question, please email it to and include ‘VolleyChat’ in the subject line.

How can I watch VolleyChat?

Tune in to Volleyball England’s Facebook page at 7pm on Thursday, 5th November to watch the first episode. We hope to see you there!
