About Us

The Harbour Volleyball Association (also known as the North Harbour Volleyball Association) was established in 2005 to govern the sport of volleyball (both indoor and beach) on the North Shore. Since then the HVA has grown immensely and well exceeded expectations.

HVA made history in New Zealand in 2005 when they were granted the lease of the Mairangi Bay Bowls Club. The premises was converted into the Mairangi Bay Beach Volleyball Centre (now referred to as the Harbour Beach Volleyball Centre). This centre has provided the players of Auckland with a permanent training facility and a home base for volleyball on the North Shore.

HVA currently has three active indoor volleyball clubs that are affiliated with the Association. The ‘Harbour Raiders’ teams have won multiple national titles over the last few seasons. The ‘East Coast Bays Thunder’ have also been successful in competing in the first division at the New Zealand Club Championships, and the new Pacifika club has been established called the “North Side Pacifika Volleyball Club”.

HVA continue to provide quality pathways in both indoor and beach volleyball for players of all ages, skill levels, and genders. If you are keen to become involved as a player, coach, manager or volunteer please have a browse around the site or email gdm@harbourvolleyball.co.nz
