EMG Volleyball clubs – Co-operation describes us the best!


Volleyball became an Olympic sport for both men and women in the Tokyo 1964 Olympics. It was the first women’s team sport in the Olympic Games. Volleyball has always been characterized by strong equality between the genders. Finland ranked second in the Gender Equality Index 2022 published by the World Economic Forum (WEF), after our beloved Nordic friend Iceland.

Volleyball is organized as a joint effort of Tampere volleyball clubs. Co-operation and working together describes us the best! Mrs Aira Ikonen, the president of the main responsible club, Rantaperkiö Isku, is a familiar sight in the volleyball stands, volunteering and organizing various large events. Under her leadership, we can promise you a warm, positive and memorable experience.

Volleyball is played in Tampere Exhibition and Sports Centre in impressive conditions. We have six courts with excellent taraflex and sufficient ceiling height. The match program is structured so that there are enough games, but between games there is also  time to get to know the city, other sports and enjoy the beautiful summer in Finland.
