The Newcastle Volleyball Committee regrets to advise that it will be suspending all club activities until at least Sunday 26th April due to the continued escalation of the COVID-19 outbreak.
We have been notified by Volleyball NSW that they are suspending their events and competitions program until Thursday 30th April, including Schools Cup events (April, May and June) as well as the community favourite State Cup events (ANZAC, Newcastle, and Illawarra).
This decision to disrupt our local community volleyball season is difficult, however is socially responsible as we proactively consider the welfare of our players, officials, coaches and the wider community.
Newcastle Volleyball will continue to monitor the local, State and National situation and will provide a further update to members no later than Friday 17th April, featuring advice on our midweek social competitions, representative team training and Spikeroos. If our community situation changes significantly before then, we will be in contact sooner.
Thank you for your support during this rapidly evolving health crisis. While we are committed to helping people play volleyball, our highest priority at the moment is keeping our volleyball and wider community safe.
If you have questions please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will do our best to respond, or we will consider for further discussion at the upcoming Committee meeting on 30th March.

With Autumn indoor social competitions up and running, we now turn our minds to the senior representative season and how local men and women can add their names to the long list of proud Newcastle Volleyball representatives competing in tournaments hosted by Volleyball NSW and its Affiliates.
Team trials will be conducted during March, before teams compete at Manly Cup (hosted by Manly-Warringah Volleyball Association) and State Cup events in Sydney, Newcastle, and Illawarra.
Check out the REPRESENT menu for more information on upcoming opportunities for men and women in 2020.
Thanks to all of the players who participated in Come & Try and registrations nights over the past fortnight. We’re thrilled to have met so many new players and formed three new Social Mixed teams, and filled places in B Grade teams for over one dozen new players also.
Please follow the SOCIALISE menu for copies of the draw for the Social divisions.
Good luck to everyone – new or returning – playing Newcastle Volleyball social competitions this month!
Happy new year everyone, great to be back with a fun year of action ahead of us.
Welcome to our new Committee also, and thanks to everyone volunteering their time to run the club for the benefit of all of our members, young and old, who love the game.
