Have the chance to experience Olympic Volleyball at Earls Court
Become a member of the our 2012 Players Club
You can play your part in helping us achieve success at the Olympics. By signing up to our 2012 Players Club and donating just a small amount each month, you can help to ensure that we play crucial, high quality matches in our preparation for the biggest sporting event in the world.
In return, some fortunate members of the 2012 Club will get the chance to experience Olympic Volleyball live at Earls Court. We will also keep you up to date with our preparations through our regular GB Women’s Supporters Newsletter and identify you on our website as a supporter of our team.
How your support will make a difference
Since our funding cut in 2010, the staff and players have worked hard to raise the funds we needed to deliver a fantastic 2011 Summer’s competitive schedule. The support we have already received from individuals, schools, businesses and partners all over the UK made our 2011 programme possible and we are indebted to that support. We have also had the opportunity to continue to give back to the Volleyball Community. We have visited over 20 schools, attended numerous Volleyball England events and interacted with over 4000 children through coaching sessions, assemblies and Q&A.
In terms of performance, 2011 has been our most successful season to date with wins against top South American and European teams. We are making the progress we know we can, and that we know we need to. We also know that next summer is even more important. Right now, we have very little money left from our fundraising efforts to fund our preparation, yet in less than a year’s time we will be regrouping for our final preparations before the Games. It is essential that we play as many international matches against quality opposition as possible if we are to deliver the results which will inspire volleyball players and teams of the future.
We are asking for your support to help us prepare in the best possible way. This is about people who are passionate to see volleyball grow and you can be part of this great effort. You can get involved by donating a small amount on a monthly basis from now until July 2012, whatever you can afford, however big or small…maybe a coffee a week? £2.12 or £20.12 per month perhaps? If 200 people gave just £10 a month from now until the London Olympics, it will raise £24,000 towards our programme which will allow us to train, play quality opposition and be the best we can be against the best in the world. Your contribution will play a significant part in our success at the Games and the impact we can have on the future of volleyball in the UK .
