The Exeter Challenge series of events have been running in one form or another since 1995, the events have been set up to break even or to make a small profit each year, in the past this has traditionally been donated to the local Exeter & District VA. In recent years we have enjoyed court sponsorship from Torexe VC, this has reduced our costs significantly, however by keeping the entry fee the same, we have been able to use the profits to help support a number of volleyball projects in the area.

In the last ten years we have raised over 5,000, which we have used to supported the following volleyball projects, if you have a project in the area, that could benefit from a small cash injection, then please let us know.
