What We Do
The Volleyball Club welcomes players of all levels!
Recreational: Never played before? No problem! We partner with Volleyball England to provide one of the top recreational offers in the country! Whether you are looking to play for fun, fitness, or to kickstart your volleyball career, our recreational sessions are just for you! Our Talent ID programme and development squads (L3's and M3's) can give you competitive experience in the Mixed Bristol league, guaranteeing a solid development path towards our performance teams!
Performance teams: For you big-hitters, roof-blockers and magic-handed setters, we have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd ladies' and men's teams. We compete in BUCS and the Bristol League. Our competitive offer provides team and position specific training, S&C sessions and an amazing challenging environment.
Beach Volleyball: We are one of the only universities with beach volleyball courts on campus. They've been home to the GB squad several times in the past. These courts provide the perfect procrastination from summer exams, and a great chance to perfect your tan! Our beach volleyball pairs compete in BUCS, the UK beach tour and other tournaments around the country. Get ready to find sand in unexpected places!
Sitting volleyball: Sitting volleyball is one of the most popular Paralympic sports, and with good reason! We run regular competitive and recreational sessions for everyone to get involved in!
Socials: We are proud to say that we regularly host some of the most varied, inclusive and fun socials around! Expect unforgettable nights out, neon volleyball and killin' the karaoke as well as trampolining, bowling, cocktail parties- you definitely don't want to miss any!
Residentials: A week of sun, sand, great company, and unforgettable nights? Come join us for a holiday, with lots of beach volleyball! We also organise an amazing weekend away!
Coaching: Our coaching mentorship scheme enables you to become a team coach, giving you coaching qualifications, coaching stash (everyone loves a bit of stash!), experience and hours towards the Bath and volunteer awards.
Committee: It's never too late to get involved with the club- if you're interested in joining our media team, feel like you could get involved in any other way, or just have some great ideas you'd like to chat to us to just give us a shout!!
