Harriers History

After many years of spiking and digging at a volleyball course at St Albans college, we knew our only way forward was to form a competitive club. With that in mind we joined the HVA (Hertfordshire Volleyball Association) and experienced people hitting the ball back.We have learnt to absorb comprehensive beatings, swollen ankles and water lapping at our feet (anyone attending the fabulous ‘Walton-on-the-Naze’ tournament will understand), and are now a better team for it.

What are Harriers?

Harriers are a volleyball club established in 1993 and play in Hertfordshire in the UK.

Who are Harriers?

We met at a college course, and decided to form a competitive volleyball team.

Why are we Harriers?

Named the Harriers, as our first venue was in view of Hawker Sidley’s, manufacturer of the Harrier ‘jump’ jet, and not because of our hovering ability at the net

Where are Harriers?

After numerous homes in the past years, we are now at both St Albans High for Girls, St Albans, Hertfordshire, 20 miles north of London.


We train and play in the Hertfordshire Volleyball Association leagues between September and May. During the summer we play in Verulamium Park and various outdoor tournaments. Contact for more details
