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.
Please check our Facebook group (request to join @UCL Volleyball 2021-2022), Instagram (@UCLVolleyball), or the What’s On Calendar for when our trials and tasters will take place.
Everyone must have the Free Remote Membership before attending any pre-season activities, such as tasters and trials. We will ask you to upgrade your membership after you have been put on a team.
Social sessions run every Thursday 8:30-10pm. These sessions are for players of ALL ABILITIES. They are a great way to play volleyball and meet new people!
All the social sessions are ticketed. Tickets are free and you MUST get one to attend.
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!
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 once 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.
