Exeter Storm Volleyball Club

Exeter Storm Volleyball Club was set up by a group of volleyball enthusiasts in 2012. Under the direction of experienced coaches and many of the best volleyball players in the Exeter area banded together to form a team with the sole purpose of gaining entry to the National Volleyball League. Since being founded the club has gone from strength to strength with teams competing in local, regional, and national leagues.

The Start

Established in 2012, Exeter Storm won the Exeter and District Division 1 and Southwest League in their maiden year. Following this huge success, the club entered England’s National Volleyball League where we successfully earned an instant promotion to Division 2. During these years we were also Southern Crown Runners Up and National Shield Semi-Finalists.

The Early Years

Under the direction of experienced coaches, Arthur Mosley and Nick Hitt, both former Great Britain players, Exeter Storm Volleyball Club made a huge impact in its initial seasons. Throughout our first decade, the club saw great success in the EDVA and SW competitions.

The Latest

The club now boasts 8 teams across National League, the Southwest Volleyball Association and the Exeter and District Volleyball Association. In addition to fielding players in junior competitions (JuVo) and having members represent the Southwest it’s a force to be reconed with.

I have played volleyball for about 12 years after getting into the sport at school. Have since played for and helped coach the south west under 17 boys and represent Exeter Storm at under 18 national competitions. As a day job I am a chartered accountant so it’s only fitting that I put myself forward for club treasurer

I joined Exeter Storm after picking up the sport 8 years ago at school. I enjoy playing in both the EDVA league and the South West league as part of the women's team. I work as a medical secretary but also assist with coaching and managing the women’s teams.

Began playing volleyball in 2008 at University and have been playing ever since. Orginally starting out as Middle, over the last few years I'm seen darting aroun the back court as the Libero. I can occiasionly be seen gracing the front court in a variety of positions in local league when times are tough. I'm responsible for the website as well as the social media content and get involved in lots of other club duties as I'm at!

Social Secretary

I’ve been playing volleyball for 20 years and have played for Exeter Storm since it’s creation. Starting out in volleyball at a beach tournament with my dad and brother and was instantly hooked. As a day job I am a Data Migration Consultant and when I’m not playing volleyball or migrating data I’m usually trying to keep my 2 kids entertained.
