  • Newcastle (Staffs) Volleyball Club is an English volleyball club based in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, England which is affiliated with Volleyball England, with teams competing at the national level for women, men, girls and boys. Formed in 1980, the club is best known for its tradition of junior development and has produced a number of England's leading talents in the sport. The club was formed following the amalgamation of two school teams in Newcastle-under-Lyme: Marshlands High School ] and Edward Orme High School ]. The two schools had developed a strong cohort of predominantly-male volleyball players; as they grew older, the players needed to play at a higher level. The club was formed and its teams rose quickly through local and regional leagues to national-league status. When it reached the lower reaches of the National League promotion came quickly, until the top flight was reached during the mid-1980s. The women's team was formed during the late 1990s from two teams, both of which had success at local level; however, until they combined they could not move to a higher level.
