Want to have the best time of your life practising a sport that is 100% teamwork and is COVID-SAFE at the same time? Have you been a life-long volleyball player or want to have a chance to try it for the first time? Or you started only recently and would like to keep playing and being part of a club? Join the Reading University Volleyball Club if you fit in any of these categories! We welcome anyone who is interested in playing for leisure or competing, with the chance to meet a variety of like-minded people and learn from an experienced coach.
The men team competes in BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sports) second division. The women team plays in the second division of the BVA (Berkshire Volleyball Association). Both the men's and women's team take part in the Student Cup, which is a two-days long national scale competition. Moreover, during the summer, we host a number of outdoor recreational trainings. So if you're staying over the summer in Reading, you might as well join us from time to time on a nice and sunny play outsides.
The training venue is the Reading University Sports Park:
As for our social side, we will work with social representatives of Entourage Project to host fun nights out and activities where you will have a blast and get to know each other more! (Teamwork in volleyball is essential, after all!). We will also try to arrange a club trip at the end of the year!
We hope that as many people as possible will join our club this year. Come along outside of Palmer Building and try out volleyball during the Freshers Sports Fair on the 21st of September, even if you've never played volleyball before - you may love it! We'll also have one or two taster sessions for free the following week, where you can experience how a proper indoor volleyball training session is at a competitive level, so be prepared for a fitness punch!
Taster session for LADIES is on the 28th of September at 10:30 am
Taster session for MEN is on the 28th of September at 10:30am
Both taster sessions are in Sportspark on campus
We have some great social events lined up for the year and it is also a great and fun way to keep fit!
We hope to see you soon!
Don't miss out!
Please feel free to join our facebook group to stay updated and ask any questions you might have. We hope to see you at one of our sessions!
