After struggling for years to get court space, Volleyball Ballarat has secured a permanent home at the Mars Minerdome.
The facility became available following the opening of Ballarat's new Sports and Events Centre last month. The extra space shored-up two volleyball-fitted courts for the league which is now poised for a bright future.
"It's given us an opportunity to grow, we've been struggling to get consistent court space one night a week for a long time which limited the number of teams we could field," Volleyball Ballarat president Damon Minotti said.
"Basketball Ballarat were really proactive in talking to us and giving us options once their new court space came online."
The league had up to four nights of competition in the past when operating out of Ballarat High School, but its numbers dwindled significantly when it lost the court space. Minotti said the Minerdome courts would provide storage and an opportunity to seek funding for new equipment.
"We can go out into the market now and into schools and say 'we've got this' so we can provide them opportunities if volleyball is a sport they'd like to play," he said.
Minotti said Volleyball Ballarat had produced top volleyball talent in the past.
He said next year the organisation would celebrate its 50th anniversary.
Competitions will take place every Monday night from 7pm.
