ABOUT US


It seemed unacceptable with Stockport voted the happiest place to live in the North West, that we shouldn’t have a local club for the wonderful sport of volleyball.

The neighbouring authorities in Greater Manchester all had representation, but our Borough was simply not on the map, yet.

What better a place to launch a pastime that would create opportunities from grass-roots and pure amateurs to aspirations of joining the elite. With no apology for plagiarism, we take the famous quote of Ian Brown of the Stone Roses, and adapt it for our territory, “Stockport has everything you need except a beach”.

Well here it is wait no longer, we bring you, Stockport Volleyball Club.

We would like to thank our National Governing Body of Sport, Volleyball England, for its assistance and advice in the birth of our enterprise.

There’s nothing more to add, other than come and try out, for fun or fame, the joy is in both participation and winning with Stockport Volleyball – “The S’PORT”.
