Volleyball is a popular competitive six-a-side sport whereby players aim to ground the ball in the opponent’s half of the court. It originated in the United States in 1895 as a blend of basketball, baseball, tennis, and handball. The spiking, passing, blocking, and setting of volleyballs make this sport overwhelmingly exciting.
This sport welcomes everyone of all abilities, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned performer. Our current members are very friendly and approachable and will deliver fun sessions specifically for beginners.For more experienced players, the university has strong links with local clubs.
The Volleyball committee is eager to host both social (Wednesday’s) and charity events for all members in which everyone will be able to engage more with the sport, the community, and the University.
In 2017/18, our aim is to increase the number of members we have and to recreate or even surpass the success that they have achieved!
