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. 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.

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 kept up their high standards, securing 1st place in the annual Les Parisiennes international tournament in Paris again last year.

Mixed Team

The Mixed team plays against other London teams in LUSL (London University Sports League). It is a relatively newer team than the Men’s and Women’s team, but has also seen great results having come 2nd in LUSL Premiership last year. The Mixed team also competes in international tournaments abroad.


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