BUCS

Consistently high-performing, TN Volleyball this year has the luxury of two Premier teams after BUCS have included the division in this year’s league format. Both first teams will be looking for a strong showing in these leagues, as will the Men’s 2nds, who after two straight promotions will be looking for Tier 1 glory. They have high standards to meet, but a good chance of meeting them.

Head of Volleyball: David Goodchild

Number of teams: 2 x Men, 3 x Women

National League

The National Volleyball League comprises of four divisions. The top division in the league is the Volleyball England Super 8s.  The Super 8s was launched in 2010 and replaced Division One as the top division for Volleyball in England.

The format of the Super 8s comprises of teams participating in a regular season and competing in fourteen rounds of matches followed by a play-off series featuring the top teams in the division, culminating in the Super 8s final held at the National Volleyball Centre in Kettering.

Both male and female Team Northumbria sides compete in the Super 8’s league, with the women winning the title last year unbeaten, and the men finishing playoff finalists after being also being unbeaten in the league run up.
