VA extends partnership with SportsLink Travel

Volleyball Australia is pleased to announce a two-year extension of its partnership with SportsLink Travel as VA’s Official Travel Partner through to 2026.

In addition to assisting with athlete and team travel for national and international tournaments, development tours and training camps, SportsLink Travel is also the Official Travel Provider for the Australian Volleyball Schools Cup and Australian Beach Volleyball Schools Cup, which bring together thousands of players and supporters from all over the country every year.

For December’s Australian Volleyball Schools Cup alone, SportsLink Travel assists more than 2000 participants, families and friends from over 60 schools throughout Australia to and from the Gold Coast on an annual basis.

Volleyball Australia CEO Andrew Dee said it is exciting to continue its partnership with SportsLink Travel.

“Throughout the calendar year, Volleyball Australia hosts more than a dozen events around the country that require extensive travel logistics,” he said. “In addition, we have senior national and age group teams competing internationally that also require complex arrangements that are sensitive to the performance needs of our athletes.

“SportsLink Travel has been a great supporter of Volleyball at all levels from schoolkids through to our best players competing on the international stage, and our partnership with them remains important to the success of our tournaments and national programs.” 

SportsLink Travel CEO Paul Kelly said it was a natural fit to extend the deal with Volleyball Australia.

“SportsLink Travel looks after thousands of people every year, travelling to various sporting events around the globe, and our association with volleyball extends to players, their families and supporters,” he said. “Volleyball is a truly global sport, and with the indoor and beach volleyball competitions seeing a year-round competition calendar of athletes heading all over the country and around the world, it’s great to be a part of that successful journey.

“We look forward to working with the entire volleyball community as the sport continues to go from strength to strength.
