Chairman - Ashley Cullen
I started to play volleyball at the relatively late age of 17 and was lucky enough to be part of the national Junior and Senior squads for a number of years. I am an experienced National League coach and currently team manager to the England Cadet Boys. I have also been running one of the largest and long lasting outdoor fun tournaments for over 30 years. I am delighted to be chair of Hampshire and my passion is to get juniors playing volleyball as early as possible and encourage them to play each discipline in this wonderful sport.
Secretary - Clarisa Hammond
I am Clarisa Hammond, the Honorary Secretary for HVA. I had started playing volleyball terribly at the age of 13 in Singapore on the indoor and beach front. While playing in the NVL in the last decade, I qualified as an NVL scorer and referee, and was fortunate enough to be part of the Volleyball Statistics Team in the London Olympics 2012. I now play for Winchester Eagles, and am involved in the committee and am helping to set up a ladies team!
Junior Volleyball - Andy MacKay
I was fortunate to start playing volleyball at school, purely because one PE teacher had a passion for the game. This early experience helped me to develop as a Middle Hitter and subsequently whilst at Loughborough University enabled selection to play for Loughborough Students and represent GB students. Playing competitively continued after university where I played for Solent, a Southampton based club in National League Div 1
I have been playing for Winchester Eagles Mens and Mixed teams for the last 13 years, where I am an active member of the committee, Men's captain and the Youth Development Officer. I am looking forward to enabling an environment for Juniors in Hampshire to experience Volleyball early so they too can enjoy playing Volleyball.

Indoor Volleyball - Andy Edwards
I'm Andy Edwards, and I run the Indoor Volleyball competitions for HVA. I don't remember when I first picked up a volleyball; my father learned to play at university and so I started to play as soon as I could handle one of the old white Tachikara balls! Playing then led to coaching, where my philosophy is to get as many people playing volleyball as possible, with a competitive focus on women's volleyball.
Somewhere around 2010 I started to get more involved in organising tournaments and leagues in Southampton, which led to my current role in HVA managing the various competitions we provide to the volleyball community in Hampshire and the surrounding areas.
Publicity Officer - Vacant
Treasurer - Caroline Hancock
I am Caroline Hancock, the Treasurer for the HVA. I joined in 2018 and am responsible for keeping HVA's finances on track! My background is in finance and I'm also treasurer for the Havant Borough Sports Association. Although I don't play volleyball, I am sport-minded and this role is a great opportunity to support the development of volleyball at a local level.
