2012 - 2013

The Norfolk Volleyball Association Development League aims to give new and developing volleyball players a chance to get some match experience in a friendly league. The league is not for players who play in the Local Leagues or higher. Please look on the 2011 link to the left to see who were the winners last year. Current Champions are Spiker Towers (from the Norwich Spikers Club).
