Our teams:

Our Men's team competes in the BUCS South Eastern Tier 1, and our Women's team competes in the BUCS South Eastern Tier 2.

Both of our teams have 1 training session and 1 gym/outdoor workout session per week  

All BUCS matches will take place in Lent term according to the last announcement from BUCS: https://www.bucs.org.uk/sports-page/volleyball.html

What do we do?

Other than that, we will be hosting socials throughout the year as a whole club (Both in-person and virtual)! These will include team dinners, pub crawls, team secret Santa, game nights, online drinking games and many more.  

This year we are also hoping to hold several charity tournaments, go on tour in LT (destination TBC), compete in 2021 Varsity competitions, participate in Les Parisiennes 2021 tournament organised by Sciences Po university and enter teams into the BUCS beach volleyball league in Summer term.
