The Australian Volleyball League, the national indoor league for men and women, has developed in format over the past few years, servicing the various demands of elite men’s and women’s volleyball, drawn largely from club/state volleyball players.
Volleyball Australia has announced a restructure of the Australian Volleyball League (AVL) and Volleyball Victoria will be entering two teams, one male and one female, in the 2019 AVL Super League to compete October-December, pending finals qualification.
Volleyball Victoria’s Melbourne Vipers are open age senior representative teams for both men and women. They participate in the Australian Volleyball League, a home and away season that sees games being played between October and December.
The last AVL season (2019) saw our Women winning Gold and our Men winning Bronze.
The 2021 and 2020 seasons were cancelled due to Covid 19.

Melbourne Vipers seek to select the best available Victorian players to represent the Vipers in the AVL. Preference will be given to players that actively training and playing at a suitable level, such as the Victorian State League and above.
A squad of approximately 14-16 players will be selected from the trialling athletes, with the addition of up to 2 ‘junior’ squad members at the discretion of the coaches.
Trainings will be held one Sunday a month during the state league season at the State Volleyball Centre, Dandenong.
