Volleyball England is launching the campaign to get more people involved in the buzz of sport, which is one of the top three most played in the world. In turn, the campaign will help to get the nation feeling fit and fabulous through social, high energy and, most of all, fun and flexible sessions.
As a sport, Volleyball, Beach Volleyball and Sitting Volleyball, the Paralympic version of the game, will all feature at the London 2012 Games. One of the Go Spike aims is to encourage people of any ability to get involved, get excited and follow the sport to 2012 and beyond.
Lisa Wainwright, CEO of Volleyball England said:
“Over half a billion people play volleyball worldwide, it is incredibly easy to play and, whatever level you play at, it can enhance your life. Volleyball improves fitness, coordination, strategic thinking and is very sociable; it’s a great way to meet new people or have fun with friends. It is our aim that Go Spike will educate the nation on what benefits volleyball can offer and help to get people outdoors and enjoying sport this summer. Just give it a go – you’ll be hooked!”
Lynne Beattie, Captain of the Great Britain Women’s Volleyball team said:
“Go Spike is a great opportunity for the nation to get involved in one of the most exciting, fast paced sports around. It’s a great sport to play outdoors in the sunshine; I began playing volleyball on holiday and became a convert – now I am captain for Great Britain women's team!”
