Hannah Bailey signs first professional contract
Athletes Abroad client Hannah Bailey has signed her first professional contract with Gislaved Volleyball Club in Sweden’s top league. Hannah goes to Sweden after playing college volleyball for Iowa State University from 2015-2018. She was part of an Iowa State squad that was consistently ranked in the top 25 in the nation.
Hannah joins a team at Gislaved that had one of the best season’s in club history including a bronze medal at the Swedish Grand Prix. The Grand Prix title is the most prestigious in Swedish elite volleyball, next to the SM title. The four teams that rank highest in the table after half of the Elitserien season qualify for the Grand Prix, where a place in European Cup games is at stake. Gislaved finished the season 5th in the table and looks to compete for a spot at the top this season.
We look forward to following Hannah’s development in her first season as a professional!
