National Volleyball Centre is closing
We have been lucky as a club to have the England National Volleyball Centre practically on our doorstep in Kettering. It was announced recently that it would be closing at the end of May this year.
Statement from Volleyball England:
Volleyball England have been informed that Kettering Conference Centre and Leisure Village, home to the National Volleyball Centre, will cease operating and close on Wednesday 31st May 2023.
All Volleyball England events due to be held at the National Volleyball Centre in May, including the NVL play-offs, Inter-Regional Championships, Volleyball England Coach Award course and Volleyball Futures camp, will be unaffected and will go ahead as planned.
We will be considering alternative venues for the short, medium and long-term future of the National Volleyball Centre as an urgent priority.
Our thoughts are with those affected by this sad news, and we would like to put on record our thanks to everyone at Kettering Arena and Kettering Conference Centre for their outstanding service to the Volleyball community over the last 14 years.
