Welcome to KCL Women’s Volleyball! We are a fun, friendly, and committed group of students and are very excited to see that you’re interested in joining our club. Regardless of your skill level, we have some great opportunities for you to play!
For beginners and those who have minimal experience:
Our Recreational membership gives you access to sessions in partnership with BeActive run every Tuesday from 15:30-17:00 at the Castle Centre (SE1 6FG). The first free taster session for this will be held on October 1st. We’ll be hosting lots of drills and scrimmage, so make sure you’re there for an afternoon of fun!
Included within this membership is an annual BeActive membership which will not only give you access to Volleyball but also to the entire BeActive timetable of over 50 classes/activities per week. For more information on the BeActive programme and to start booking sessions please visit: https://www.kcl.ac.uk/sport/clubs/beactive
For more experienced players looking to play competitively:
Our Standard membership gives you access to the competitive BUCS and LUSL teams, with the club covering all coaching and travel costs.
Our 1st team is currently competing in BUCS South Eastern Division 1 and has recently been made a King’s Sport Performance team. We train on Saturdays with a qualified coach and have weekly strength and conditioning sessions with the King’s Sport department. Our fixtures take place every Wednesday afternoon against competitive universities from across the UK. In addition to BUCS, we also compete in tournaments such as Volleyball England’s Student Cup and the London Varsity Series. We had a very successful season in 2018/19 and are keen for you to join us in seeing what this year brings!
Trials for the 1st team will take place on Wednesday, September 25th and Saturday, September 28th. Further details about locations and registration can be found on our Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/kclwvc/. Please try to attend both sessions if possible!
Another competitive opportunity we offer is the Mixed Team, in collaboration with the Men’s Volleyball team. This team competes in the London Universities Sports League (LUSL) and partakes in friendlier weekly matches against other universities in London. The first fixture is on Monday, October 21st. You can still compete in the Mixed team even if you don’t make the 1st team! Get in touch with our club president for more information.
