The Club was formed in 1976 with just a junior girl’s team. A boys team soon followed and the junior sections have formed the basis of the Club ever since. The Club entered Men's and Ladies teams in the National League and both worked their way up the divisions into their respective National League Division's. Wessex is now one of the largest and most successful clubs in England with National League Women's and Men's teams as well as junior and mini volleyball teams. In the last ten years, the Wessex under 14,15,16 and 18 teams have all won 34 National Championships and our Mini Volleyball teams have won numerous South West titles. Numerous players from the Club have played for the South West teams, England Cadets, England Juniors and the England and GB Senior teams.
We run junior sessions for girls and boys from age 8 to 18 and National league training sessions at various venues on different week nights. Wessex have 9 teams in the PBVA leagues at the moment. National League matches are played at weekends (the women are current National Champions). In the summer we run beach sessions with over 20 courts at Sandbanks beach and the Club organises the Sandbanks Beach Classic each year.
The Club's coaches work closely with the local schools, teaching and running tournaments.
