We are excited to announce that Volleyball Ballarat will have a new permanent home by July 2019 and our 41st Annual Skins Tournament will be hosted at the Mars “Minerdome”. Currently Ballarat’s premier indoor stadium, the venue boasts 4 courts including a show court with grandstand, licensed bar and bistro areas that overlook the main courts, a cafe and canteen area and excellent change rooms and amenities. We will maintain Loreto College as our second venue this year but as the upgrade to the Wendouree Sports and Entertainment Complex draws neaer completion, the capacity for Volleyball to access up to 10 first class courts across 2 outstanding venues with 500m of each other will give our tournament significant capacity to grow in future years.
We are currently taking expressions of interest for our 2019 tournament in the following divisions:
Men’s and Women’s Division 1
Men’s and Women’s Division 2
Men’s and Women’s Division 3
