The Ontario Volleyball Association (OVA) is privileged to announce the 21 inductees into the OVA Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2021!
This is the largest group to be inducted since the Hall of Fame was established in 2018.
The inductees will be enshrined in the OVA Hall of Fame for their historic and significant accomplishments in the sport of volleyball and also for the enduring impact their contributions have led and will continue to have across the province and country.
The inductees of the OVA Hall of Fame Class of 2021 are:
Hamilton YMCA Men (1960)
Toronto Kalve Women (1958)
Robert ‘Bob’ Wright
Dr. R. Jack Brooke
Traditionally, the inductees would be honoured at the OVAtion Awards Banquet; however, due to the pandemic and limited indoor gatherings, the inductees will be celebrated across OVA social media platforms.
Started in 2018, the OVA Hall of Fame honours the individuals and teams who have had a significant impact on volleyball in Ontario. The inductees exemplify the best in the history of the sport in our province through the categories of Athlete, Team, Coach, Referee, Builder and Furlani Legend.
