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.
