Jennifer Taylor was first introduced to volleyball after a coach came into her school to try and find and select new players to represent Bolton in the Greater Manchester Youth Games. Taylor was meant to be representing Bolton at hockey but, in her own words, fell in love with volleyball.
She was left without a club when Dutch outfit TFM/DOK Dwingeloo folded earlier this year following a lack of confirmed sponsorship. Taylor found a club to practice with, Pollux Oldenzaal, but isn’t allowed to play for them. British teammate Joanne Morgan was also affected by TFM/DOK folding.
