Welcome to Volleyball Bay of Plenty!

Volleyball Bay of Plenty is a not for profit regional volleyball association which was established in 1973.

At Volleyball Bay of Plenty, we are more than just a sports organisation; we are a passionate community committed to providing exceptional volleyball opportunities to all in the beautiful Bay of Plenty region. Our vision is to foster a vibrant and inclusive volleyball culture that reaches far beyond the court, touching the lives of people of all ages and backgrounds.

Our mission is simple yet powerful: to promote and develop the sport of volleyball across the Bay of Plenty, encouraging active participation, skill development, and a deep love for the game. We firmly believe in the positive impact sports can have on individuals and communities alike, and we strive to make volleyball a medium for personal growth, teamwork, and fun.

Our programs are thoughtfully designed to cater to youth development, adult leagues, social events, and even competitive tournaments. We firmly believe in the power of sport to bring people together, building lasting friendships and strengthening bonds within our community.

We are driven to give back and contribute positively to the regions we serve. We actively collaborate with local schools, community centers, and other organizations to extend the reach of volleyball to those who may not have had the opportunity before. We take immense pride in promoting a healthy and active lifestyle while fostering camaraderie among players and supporters.

So, whether you're a seasoned volleyball enthusiast, a curious beginner, or a parent looking for a vibrant sports community for your children, Volleyball Bay of Plenty has a place for you. Join us in our mission to embrace the spirit of volleyball and experience the joy of being part of a truly special community.
