Description

 

The All Nations began in 2005, ahead of London being awarded the 2012 games. It was created to embody the Olympic ideal, blending sport, culture and education. As we enter the 15th year of the event, we aim to promote peaceful competition in a friendly, fun environment, highlighting the cultural togetherness that is so evident in London. A tournament organising committee was formed that wanted to create an event that captured the eclectic mix of communities that can be found in London and provide a way of positively promoting the diversity of the city. 

The underpinning focus of the tournament is the opportunity to play in a competitive Volleyball environment that off the court raises awareness of culture and encourages friendship and togetherness.

 

History

 

At the first All Nations Tournament in 2005 170 participants from 24 nationalities took part. The 2018 tournament had over 530 participants and 50 teams. The tournament, one of the main highlights of the Volleyball Calendar attracts players from around the UK. It is also a massive community spectacle and is an excellent example of how sport can bring people together.

This year we will continue working with environmentally and socially conscious companies to reduce our carbon footprint and to raise awareness of the effect of climate change on our environment, under the watchful eye of The Glacier Trust 

 

We want to continue to look at ways of reducing the waste products generated at the tournament.  We want to celebrate the diversity in the UK and show that despite the current political climate we can be different and still together.
