Hello and welcome to UCL Volleyball!

The UCL Volleyball Club is an incredibly international club that caters for players of all abilities. All of our training sessions are at Somerstown Community Sports Centre on Chalton Street, a 10 minute walk from UCL. Our four 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 allow 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 or trying it out, then please come to 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) Division 1A against University teams, Indoor Student Cup and other national and international tournaments. The Men’s team consistently achieves high results and aims to develop individual player performance throughout each season. 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 previous volleyball experience and are ready to commit to a team. 

Women’s Team

Like the Men’s Team, the Women’s Team competes in BUCS Division 1A, BUCS Trophy, Indoor Student Cup and other national and international tournaments. The Women’s team also consistently achieves highly 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 previous volleyball experience and who will fully commit to the team.

Mixed Teams

The Mixed teams play against other London teams in LUSL (London University Sports League). The mixed teams have also achieved great results, with one team winning their league last year. The Mixed teams also have opportunities to compete in other tournaments, across the UK and abroad. Both mixed teams are competitive and practice once a week with a game approximately every two weeks. 

Social Sessions

Social sessions are run every Thursday 8:30-10pm. These sessions are for players of ALL ABILITIES. They are a chance for our members to play volleyball together and socialize at the same time.

After these sessions, we often head to the local pub for a drink. Our club also organizes lots of other social events throughout the year, such as club dinners, ice skating and park volleyball!
