Welcome to University of the West of England Bristol Volleyball Club. We are a diverse, friendly, growing sports club consisting of three teams! 

We currently have three BUCS teams that compete nationally against other universities on a higher competitive level as well as a social team where we welcome all abilities who come together to play for fun. We also participate in the Bristol and District Volleyball League (BADVL) during weekends, where we get to play against other local teams in Bristol. Whether you're a highly skilled player who's got a competitive edge, or you're simply just starting out, we have a place for everyone!
