The Eastern Regional Tournaments have been run successfully by Keith Nicholls for 28 years. Over the years the Men's and Ladies tournaments and matches have been in various different formats and locations.


The current format is a series of six one day tournaments open to any Volleyball England affiliated men and women’s teams from the Eastern Region. Every tournament is played on four wooden sprung courts at the superb UEA Sportspark (Norwich), with space for plenty of men’s and ladies teams in each tournament.

Teams can enter one, two, three, four, five or all six the tournaments, although those teams who enter more tournaments will have guaranteed places. Each tournament carries points that over the series determine the Eastern Region men and women’s tournament champions. Teams from outside the Region are welcome to play in tournaments subject to spaces. 

The series is now organised by the Norfolk Volleyball Association and is supported by the Eastern Volleyball Federation and Volleyball England. The series still has links to the Ruth Nicholls Volleyball Foundation and the entry fees for the last tournament will be donated to the foundation.
