About

We are the Arts Volleyball Club! 

 

Our Sports Offer

We welcome everyone and all ranges of ability. Whether you have never touched a volleyball in your life, or if you have been playing since you can remember, you'll have a place in our team! We have two competitive teams (Womens and Mixed) for those who want to participate in competitve sport. Our Women's team compete in BUCS and our Mixed team compete in LUSL BUCS. Last year, our Mixed team placed 2nd in the finals of the first ever Mixed LUSL BUCS competition! We are also proud to say that the Arts Volleyball Team has won Varsity for 4 years in a row now! We also offer non-competitive, recreational sessions for those who just want to focus on developing, learning and improving.

 

A Normal Year

The first few sessions are part of 'Give it a Go' week, in which everyone is invited to come along and try volleyball. Shortly after 'Give it a Go' week we have a trial session, in which the coach will choose players that will be part of the team for the season. Each team is made up of about 15 people and receive training once a week with a coach for 1.5 hours. The matches usually take place once a fortnight. The recreational sessions are also held once a week for 1.5 hours. 

 

During Covid-19

Even though we haven't been holding any in-personsessions, we have continued to remain an active and engaged club. We have held a volleyball related quiz to win the vol.1 of the Manga Haikyuu (volleyball manga), and we are very passionate about developing volleyball IQ and knowledge by sharing volleyball related content on our Instagram account.
