15 April 2012 / 16:44

The British Volleyball Federation have announced the fixture programme they hope will prepare their teams for this summer's Olympics.

With all male and female athletes due back at Sheffield's English Institute of Sport over the coming fortnight, pre-tournament plans are about to be activated.

And, as part of the build-up, Harry Brokking's men and Audrey Cooper's women will play a number of fixtures ahead of the London Games.

The men start the programme off with a European Championships qualifier against Albania in Crawley on May 19, with the women then meeting Argentina on June 1 and 3 in Sheffield.

The men are back in action next, playing Belgium on June 12, 14 and 16 in Edinburgh, before the women wrap things up against Algeria in Glasgow on June 22 and 23.

Both sides will then head to Loughborough where they will head into a Team GB training and kitting-out camp.
