GB Olympic volleyball player Rachel Laybourne, with the help of top players from Polonia Volleyball Club, put on a super week of volleyball activities at St Benedict�s School, Ealing just before summer half-term. The culmination on Friday was the inter-house volleyball tournament which was won by Gervase.
Volleyball is one of the most popular sports in the world and it is a dynamic and fast moving game. St Benedict�s School is the home ground of CBL Polonia, one of Britain�s top volleyball clubs, who play their fixtures in the school sports hall.

Nikki Woodroffe, Director of Sport at St Benedict�s, summed up: �An amazing week of inspiration and fun during our PE lessons which was coupled with speed cage competitions, an inter-house tournament, and specific team workshops with GB and professional players. The coaches shared best practice as to how we could deliver volleyball differently here at St Benedict�s. We are now looking forward to developing in partnership with Volleyball England a more direct and permanent performance pathway for our players, some of whom were identified through this great initiative.�
