The English Volleyball Association picks the national team, runs the National Volleyball League, National Knock-Out Cup and Student Cup and organizes the training and assessment of referees and coaches. 

Men's volleyball in England has been dominated by London Malory, however now Sheffield has become one of the strongest teams in the league winning the 2008 National Cup Final against London Malory. Sheffield is also one of the youngest teams in the league. 

 

Women's volleyball in England has also been dominated by London Malory in the past. In 2008, the University of London Union women's team defeated London Malory in the Cup quarter-finals and left them out of the Final for the first time in 13 years. The student side, which competes in the London Premier League defeated Wessex-Team Bath in the semi-finals and London Polonia in the Final to become the first ever non-national league team to win the National Cup. 

 

England is justifiably world famous for its majestic buildings and history dating back thousands of years. Throughout its long history, it's been a green and pleasant land, a sceptred isle and a nation of shopkeepers. It's stood as a beacon of democracy and a bastion of ideological freedom, as well as a crucible of empire and a cradle of class oppression. Magna Carta, the King James Bible and the welfare state were all dreamt up here, but then again so were beer bellies, Bovril and Mr. Bean. 

 

It's a nation of tea-tippling eccentrics and train spotters, of dog lovers and basketball fanatics, of punk rockers, gardeners, gnome collectors, celebrity "wannabees", superstar chefs, free-wheeling city traders, pigeon fanciers, cricket bores and part-time Morris Dancers. To many it's the most eccentric, extraordinary and downright incomprehensible place on earth. Welcome to England!
