Paul William Volley (born 2 November 1971 in Beckenham, Kent) is an English rugby union player. As an open-side flanker, he played for London Wasps for 16 years. He joined as a 16-year-old from Chinnor. Volley was first called up to the senior England squad by Clive Woodward for the 2000 England rugby union tour of South Africa.[1] However he was ultimately never capped at this level. He has also been selected for England A on numerous occasions. He has won the Domestic and European competitions with London Wasps. After winning both the Zurich Premiership and Heineken Cup with Wasps in 2004, he headed across the Channel to play for Castres Olympique in France. He then returned to play for and captain Wasps' London rivals, Harlequins, and in 2008 signed a 2-year deal to play for RFU Championship side London Scottish.

Volley was educated at Lord Williams School in Thame, Oxfordshire.
