Volleyball Otago – Open Competitive League

Volleyball Otago offers a competitive league for players wanting to play competitive volleyball but not play in the more serious Southern League or Volleyball NZ tournaments. These leagues are run throughout the year and generally run for 10 weeks at a time. Currently there’s a Woman’s and Men’s competition and at the penultimate end of the 10 weeks – semi-finals and a final.

This is a fantastic league to keep the volleyball skills alive and further improve with consistency of game time on the court. There are typically 16 teams competing, even in the depths of Dunedin’s winter.

If there is enough interest we hope to also add a Co-ed competition alongside the Men’s and Woman’s in 2021.

Club – Scorpian Volleyball Club

Established in the mid 1970’s, Scorpion Volleyball Club has become the leading volleyball club in the Otago/Southland region. Scorpion Club has a strong tertiary focus after it merged with the Varsity team, allowing university students the opportunity to play within a club framework that offers administrative and coaching support.

Both the men’s and women’s teams compete in the South Island wide Southern League Competition with club teams from Christchurch and the Tasman area, as well as the New Zealand Volleyball Club Championships held at the end of the year.

Scorpian Club is the place if you wish to play at the highest level in Dunedin. Head to their website or facebook for more information –
