Volleyball England announces restructure of Hub team
7th April 2021
Volleyball England has restructured its Hub team to better align resources to the organisation’s strategic commitments.
With immediate effect, work will now support one of four areas. This includes the three key areas of Volleyball England’s new strategy: Volleyball For Life, An Ace Service, and Get Keep Grow. The fourth area covers business services.
Launched in 2020, The Game Plan is Volleyball England’s 10-year strategy to lead the growth and improvement of all disciplines of volleyball in England.
With volleyball activity set to resume after a prolonged period of inactivity caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, Volleyball England is now ready to push forward with ambitious plans to grow the sport.
Strategic work areas
Volleyball For Life concentrates on volleyball pathways for players, coaches, officials and volunteers. It is also concerned with the National Talent Pathway and the technical development of education and training programmes for each pathway.
An Ace Service covers a range of products and services to support the Volleyball Family, this includes Volleyball England’s competitions and events.
Get Keep Grow is focused on developing membership packages and strengthening the structure of volleyball clubs in England. A robust and resilient club eco-system is essential if our sport is to thrive across all its disciplines, which is why clubs are at the heart of our strategy.
Business services covers key functions that work across the business such as commercial, communications, digital, finance, governance and insight.

Sue Storey, Chief Executive of Volleyball England, said: “Changing the structure to reflect the strategy will help to reinforce the intent and direction of the organisation both internally and externally with all key stakeholders.
“Working collaboratively with staff, the structural change has been carefully deliberated and will allow the senior management team to align staff work plans and performance management processes to the key areas of the strategy in a more effective and efficient way.
“It has been a tough year for sport and a tough year for Volleyball England and we are now ready to return with a bang.”
