Rob Payne, Volleyball England’s strategic manager for An Ace Service, said: “Last year’s Cup Finals Weekend was the best atmosphere I have witnessed in the last 10 years, and we plan to make things even bigger and better this year.

“We have the return of DJ Waite, whose music was a massive hit at our Super League Opening Weekend at the beginning of the season, and it is just one of several things we have planned to make it a memorable spectator experience.

“Cup finals bring together the best teams and players in the country who have earned the right over the course of the season to play to be national champions, so the standard will be high, with a level of excitement to match.”
