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.
Being a part of the Women's Rebels Volleyball Programme has allowed me to flourish as an athlete, a student at the University of Essex, and as a person in my general life. I have learnt lots of valuable lessons being on the programme, as well as meeting people that I now call friends for life. Excluding the generous benefits of being on the performance programme such as S&C coaches, free gym memberships, components of fitness testing throughout the season, and access to the one-of-a-kind facilities at the Essex Sports Arena; The Rebels Volleyball Programme allows every athlete to reach their full potential as a successful Student- Athlete.
