Biography

Rachel Laybourne started playing volleyball as part of her GCSEs with her PE teacher believing she had the right skill sets for the sport. She was recommended to Sheffield Volleyball Club and made her debut for Britain in 2007.

Laybourne was struck down with a grade two SLAP tear to her right shoulder in December 2010, an injury that needed surgery and kept her sidelined for five months.
