Mt. Lofty Volleyball Club

The Mount Lofty Volleyball Club was formed in 1986 to give talen...ted Volleyballers from the strong Stirling/Heathfield/Aldgate Adelaide Hills area a chance to play State League Volleyball.

In its first year the Mount Lofty men's team, coached by Harley Simpson and captained by National player Steve Tutton won the two major events in South Australia, The State League Premiership and the South Australian Open.

1987 saw the club campaign two State League teams with the inclusion of a women's team. This team coached by David Eldridge emulated the men's outstanding effort of winning the State League premiership in their first year. Olympic Gold Medallist Kerri Pottharst was a member of this team.

In a very short period of time, Mount Lofty has become one of the powers of Australian Volleyball with many national and state players representing the club.

Mt Lofty was a foundation Club of the Australian Volleyball League fielding both men's and women's teams, winning both men's and women's divisions in 2002, 2004 and 2006. See More
