Hull Thunder Volleyball Club formerly Beverley Volleyball Club was formed in the mid 90’s when the Hull men’s National League team changed venue to play in Beverley, East Yorkshire. Due to the strain of retaining enough quality players the club merged with Hull Y.P.I. to form City of Hull Volleyball Club in 2003.
In 2008 following the collapse of the City of Hull, Beverley Volleyball Club played on once more returning to their Beverley roots play out of Bishop Burton College. Since those days of near oblivion in 2008 the club driven forward by a few dedicated members have built club back up from the bottom to be become leading forces both locally and regionally.
Due to the growing number of members and the opportunity to take advantage and a brand new facility in late 2013 Beverley Volleyball Club were once again on the move back to Hull and the new Trinity Academy School in the city centre.
Off the back of the success being achieved in the Hull and East Yorkshire (HEYVA) local league and Yorkshire Premier League (YPL) it was decided that in the 2014/2015 season the club would bring National League Volleyball (NVL) back to the city for the first time in over a decade. Alongside the new NVL team the club was also renamed Hull Thunder Volleyball Club to show our intention to remain in the city and promote volleyball within the area.
