Led by former Great Britain Volleyball captain Head Coach, Alex Porter, the volleyball programme here at Essex is one of the best in the country.
As a Volleyball England Senior Academy, with a long-standing partnership with Tendring Volleyball Club, Women’s Super League Champions 2019, and Team Essex Volleyball Club, whose men’s team plays in the Volleyball England National League playing Volleyball at Essex is like none other.
As a member of the Essex Rebels you'll have access to Essex Sport Arena, on the University’s award-winning Colchester Campus in the National Volleyball Super League – England’s highest level for volleyball teams and a wide range of different facilities to make sure you are prepared both on court and off of it.
Playing for Essex feels like a dream come true. Volleyball is my whole life and to play for such an amazing team is a blessing. The resources such as gym sessions, physical therapy, and multiple training sessions have helped me reach levels in my athletic ability I never thought I could reach. Coach Porter has given me so many great lessons to overcome mental and physical obstacles. I wouldn’t be where I am if he had not given me the chance to prove myself and prove my love for the sport. The girls aren’t just my teammates, they are my second family, and I am so excited to see how we grow in the years to come. The program has given me so much and I am proud to represent Essex Uni on the court
