Berlin's professional volleyball team originates in the western district of Charlottenburg, but plays home matches at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Prenzlauer Berg. The BR Volleys have been particularly successful since the late 1990s. Lightning struck twice for the Volleys in 2018/19, overcoming a poor start to the season to sweep into the playoffs and eventual Bundesliga victory, defeating regular season table-toppers Friedrichshafen in five games in the final. Will a fifth title in a row come in 2019/20? Can they make it seven titles in eight seasons? The Volleys have a healthy lead at the top of the league as we enter a crucial stage of the season, although the fat lady may well be warming up her voice already.
