‘Digging’ in the garden in England
News from the National Federations

Loughborough, England, March 25, 2020. In the absence of matches and training sessions, Volleyball players in England have been recording clips of their own creative Volleyball workouts at home.

It started with a simple video of a member of staff from Volleyball England – the country’s National Governing Body – digging a volleyball against a garden wall, which was uploaded to Twitter with the hashtag #digginginthegarden.

A call to action for the community to share their own clips was then issued and volleyballers in England have risen to the challenge.

As well as many videos of other players also #digginginthegarden, there have been top tips from young coaches, short films of inventive sitting volleyball setups and even a video of someone digging a volleyball while digging in the garden.

Since the campaign began on March 19, more than 15,000 views have been racked up on videos that have either tagged Volleyball England or used the hashtag #digginginthegarden.

Stewart Thorpe, Content and Communications Coordinator at Volleyball England, said, “During this difficult period, with the impact the coronavirus has had on us all, it’s been heart-warming to see the volleyball community pull together on social media. The reaction since we published the first #digginginthegarden video has been phenomenal. It is so important for us to not only try and keep volleyballers active, however we can, but also to rally the community in this time of crisis.

“We hope this campaign has proved to be a pleasant distraction and aim for it to be the first of many in the weeks ahead.”

Head to @VBallEngland on Twitter to watch some of the videos or search #digginginthegarden.
