The Western Phantoms are a State League Volleyball club based in Country Victoria. Our oath is to support and grow volleyball of all levels in Country Victoria!


The Phantoms Volleyball Club would like to wish all their members and the wider volleyball community a very merry Christmas and a safe and festive New Year. We look forward to seeing you all back on court in 2020 for our biggest and best season yet!


Saturday February 1st & Sunday February 9th

The Club will once again field a complete set of teams in all Men’s and Women’s Divisions in VVL for 2020 and will be holding two trials this year to select those teams. To help with planning, we ask all players who intend to try out for teams to email the Club and indicate which trials they will attend. Ideally all players will attend both trials to give coaches the best opportunity to see them in action however we understand that might not be possible for everyone.
Please email info@phantomsvolleyball.com.au with you NAME, AGE, GENDER and TRIAL DATES you will attend.

You will need to be at the venues at least 30 minutes prior to the advertised start time of the trial (see below) so that we can complete any administration tasks and maximise our time on court together. Please make sure you have plenty of drinks, snacks and lunch each day along with appropriate clothing including changes if it is a hot day. Trials for 2020 teams will be held on the below dates and locations. We look forward to seeing huge numbers again at these trials as we continue to grow our presence in both local competitions where we provide a pathway to elite volleyball for regional participants and in the success of our teams in VVL competition.
