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.

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.

Sitting Volleyball - Mike Stoneman

I'm currently a member of South Hants Sitting Volleyball Club and have been with the Club since it was established back in 2009. I got into the sport following an amputation of my left leg above the knee after which I took part in the Amputee Games at the Stoke Mandeville Stadium where I tried out a variety of sports. Sitting Volleyball caught my intention and together with two other founding members, Steve Bailey and David Williamson, we established the club

I have had an amazing 15 years in the sport which has included taking part in the SVB Grand Prix series. I am now one of four coaches within the club that shares the coaching across the year. The club trains every Monday night (during term time) at The Harbour School in Portsmouth

I'm keen to see how we can develop the sitting side of volleyball across Hampshire in order to open up access and opportunities to more players - able bodied and disabled.

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.
