The team plays most of its home games at the University Oval in Dunedin, but occasionally plays games at the Events Centre in Queenstown, Queen's Park Ground in Invercargill and Molyneux Park in Alexandra. The team mainly plays first-class, List A and Twenty20 matches against other New Zealand provincial sides, but also in the past has played touring sides.
Jacob Duffy is the Volts' current first-class, List A and Twenty20 captain. He replaced Mark Craig, who was named but suffered a family bereavement and subsequent injury. Their current coach is Rob Walter.
