Our recreational offer has been recognised as one of the best in the UK. We are funded by Volleyball England as part of the HEVO initiative. Your HEVO officer this year is Chris Hagen. Please feel free to message him with any queries about rec sessions and any feedback!
Recreational volleyball aims to give you the perfect introduction to volleyball. We host 3 lunchtime sessions and 1 morning session on Fridays per week introducing skills, playing skill-based games, and giving you the chance to use these in competitive volleyball matches. We have experienced players and coaches running the sessions. They are around to provide group and individual tuition, so come say hi!!
We provide a fantastic opportunity for progression with some of our rec players getting as far as the first team! Part of this is our development squad, where the best performing players in rec are invited to train and play competitive games with performance team members.
Every year, we host a huge neon volleyball social for all members of the club, where we have a blackout in Founders hall, get some UV lights, neon paint, music and get everyone playing. Believe me, it's awesome!
As well as the 4 weekly sessions, members are allowed to join our weekly recreational sitting volleyball sessions, where you can learn more about this paralympic sport (and get a great upper body workout)! During the summer we head to the university beach volleyball courts where we teach the basics of beach and host 4v4 rec tournaments!
As a recreational player, you get the opportunity to play volleyball with loads of people at a similar standard. You'll be a member of a family-like club with incredible, varied socials and you'll have the opportunity to develop at a pace that suits you! Our sessions are relaxed and the people are awesome, so don't be shy, come along (and bring your friends)!
