50th Birthday Celebrations

Volleyball Ballarat is turning 50 this year and will hosting a special anniversary event to celebrate this major milestone and to recognise the vast and significant contribution our members have made to the Association and to volleyball as a whole. We are now calling for any past or present members who would like to be involved in the organisation of this event to contact us either with information, stories or anecdotes from the last 50 years they would like us to share; to assist in the preparation and running of the event; to pass on past member details so we can get in touch; or to sponsor the event. If you think you can make a contribution, please email president@volleyballballarat.com.au

2020 Social Competition

We will commence our new Social Competition season in February 2020. The year will begin with a come and try and grading night for teams on Monday February 3rd from 7pm at the Ballarat Minerdome. We look forward to welcoming returning teams and individual members back along with any new teams or individuals regardless of experience or ability. Please email us at contact@volleyballballarat.com.au if you intend to return this year or are interested in joining the competition.
We also strongly encourage any current junior members or potential new junior players and their parents to come to Court 1 at the Minerdome on Monday 3rd February at 6:30pm to meet some of our coaches and Committee and discuss options and opportunities for training and competition in 2020.
The Committee is currently reviewing a number of areas of operation including member costs, training opportunities and development programs. At this stage we anticipate there will be a small price increase for match fees in recognition of the increasing operational costs the Association faces. We hope to limit this to approximately $1 per person per week. Further details will be posted in the coming days.

A Grade Grand Final Match Report – Phantoms d white Knights 3-0
White Knights we’re defending champions having won 3 of the last 4 seasons but couldn’t match the fire power of a renewed Phantoms line up featuring 4 State League players. Phantoms dominated the match early building a 13-4 lead in the first set before White Knights fought back to hit the front 16-14, but after a strategic time out from Ben Hassell, Phantoms steadied to take the first set. The second and third sets were initially tight trading points up to 10 but as each set went on, Phantoms were able to build several runs of points and skip clear to a commanding win. Congratulations to Ben Hassell, Georgie Hassell, Henry Murnane, Liam Holding, Kristyl Seiler, Lee Edwards, Chris Metcalfe,
