Sitting Volleyball was invented in 1965 and debuted in the Paralympic Games in 1976 Toronto. Similar to Indoor Volleyball, the team is formed of 6 players who have 3 touches to get the ball over the net into the opposition's court. With a smaller court and lower net, sitting volleyball is faster paced than both indoor and beach volleyball counterparts. Sitting Volleyball can be played by all ages and abilities. Currently in English competitions, teams can be of mixed gender and you don't have to have a disability to be eligible to play. Competitions run in a Grand Prix style held across the UK.
Unfortunately, Wessex Volleyball Club doesn't provide sitting volleyball opportunities at the moment but that does not mean we don't want to. Its on our Development Plan and were looking to partner with others to make this happen. If you are interested, or know someone who might be, please Contact Us!
