Volleyball teams face testing schedule

GREAT Britain’s respective volleyball teams face a tough schedule ahead of this summer’s Olympic Games.

The men’s and women’s team are due back at the English Institute of Sport in the next two weeks and pre-tournament plans are about to be finalised.

Harry Brokking’s men will start with a European Championship qualifier against Albania in Crawley on May 19, while the women meet Argentina on June 1 and 3 in Sheffield.

The men then play Belgium on June 12, 14 and 16 in Edinburgh, before the women face Algeria in Glasgow on June 22 and 23.

Both sides will then head to Loughborough where they will head into a Team GB training and kitting-out camp.
