NVL 2022 start postponed

NVL 2022 start postponed

Volleyball NZ were advised late last week of a change to the scheduling of the 2022 AVC Women’s Challenge Cup tournament due to Covid-19 impact in the host nation Hong Kong.

As a result, the Thailand Volleyball Association have offered to assume the hosting of the event however, it will now be held June 22-July 1.

The Volley Ferns will be participating in that event and the new dates directly conflict with the scheduled first weekend of the 2022 National Volleyball League (NVL) in Christchurch - Friday 24 June – Sunday 26 June. 

As a result of this, VNZ can confirm we will be at least postponing the first week of the NVL in 2022 and potentially rescheduling both weekends. The exact dates and timings for the revised schedule are being worked through currently and will be confirmed as soon as we can.

VNZ remains committed to delivery of the NVL in 2022 and will work with all stakeholders to deliver a quality experience for those involved in our pinnacle domestic competition
