18 Apr Team Essex Volleyball Club makes history
Team Essex Volleyball Club, based in Chelmsford, has now accomplished something no one else has done.
The Men’s first team has won Division 1 of the National Volleyball League, meaning they are the first men’s team from Essex to reach the top division of English Volleyball, the Super 8’s.
“No one could have predicted we would be in the title picture at all, never mind actually winning it” said team captain Kieran Good, “We all have been just working extremely hard for the past couple of seasons and it’s finally paid off”.
Coach Bransilav Kovac travels over an hour to every training session, along with all the club committee who run the club alongside full time careers.
Along with all the volunteers, Team Essex is also dependent on local businesses that support the club in the form of sponsorship. Self Holistic Health and Wibblers Brewery are two of the key ones in this success.
But it’s not just the men that have had success this year, the Team Essex women’s team have managed to secure their position in Division 1 in their debut season with 2 games remaining. Whilst the U18 boys have won the National Cup Championship with the U16 girls coming runners-up in the same competition.
