Hello and welcome to UCL Volleyball!

The UCL Volleyball Club is an incredibly international club that caters for players of all abilities. Our base is at Somers Town Community Sports Centre on Chalton Street, a 10 minute walk from UCL. Our three competitive teams have achieved successful results every year at local, national and international levels, including the BUCS/LUSL leagues, the Indoor and Beach Student Cup and competitions out of London including Warwick, Lille and Paris. Our social sessions have allowed members to learn how to play volleyball and improve on their skills through different modes of playing. More information on what the Club offers, the team training times and trials can be read below.

Social Volleyball

Our social sessions are run once a week and are open to players of ALL LEVELS. If you are interested in playing volleyball and trying it out then come attend a social session. Additionally, the past academic year has seen us run a variety of successful events, such as All-you-can-play Beach Volleyball, Outdoor Grass Volleyball, and the extremely well received Glow-in-the-dark Volleyball. Members of the Volleyball Club have the benefit of discounted prices for all our events!

Men’s Team

The Men’s First Team competes in the BUCS (British Universities & College Sports) Premiership and BUCS Championship against University teams, London League against local teams, Indoor Student Cup and other national and international tournaments. The Men’s team consistently achieves high results, coming 3rd and 6th in the UK in 2014 and 2015, respectively. The men's team practices 1-2 times a week and has a game about once a week. This is a competitive team for players that have played volleyball before and are ready to commit to the team. 

Women’s Team

Like the Men’s Team, the Women’s Team competes in BUCS Division 1A, BUCS Trophy, London League, Indoor Student Cup and other national and international tournaments. The Women’s team has consistently done well in their competitions. The women's team practices 1-2 times a week and has a game about once a week. This is a competitive team for players that have played volleyball before and are ready to commit to the team.

Mixed Team

The Mixed team plays against other London teams in LUSL (London University Sports League). The mixed team has also seen great results having come 2nd in LUSL Premiership last year. The Mixed team also competes in international tournaments abroad. Last year there were two mixed teams and we are hoping to have the same turnout for this year. Both mixed teams are competitive and practice once a week with a game about every other week. 

Socials

After practice we head down to the local pub, and every Wednesday UCL has SportsNight!! We are a very diverse club and welcome everyone to join. See you on the court!
