Welcome to University of the West of England Bristol Volleyball Club. We are a diverse, friendly, growing sports club consisting of four teams and a development squad!
We currently have four 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 as well as National Volleyball League (NVL) and play a higher level of competitive volleyball against other club teams. 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!
We were awarded Best Sports Club in 2019 so if you are thinking about joining a club but aren't sure which one, why not join the best one? ;)
No need to be athletic or even want to play, we have members that are purely social and simpy enjoy the company of the Volleyball Family.
TASTER SESSIONS AND TRYOUTS ARE NOW OPEN FOR SIGN UPS (top of the page)
SIGN UP NOW TO OUR MAILING LIST:
We will use the information to organise taster sessions and tryouts (respecting number limitations and covid safe guidelines), as well as update you on any coming club activity.
COVID SAFETY MEASURES:
As a club, we have invested in sports sanitising equipment, which we will use before and after every session (disinfecting people's hands as well as all the equipment used). People participating in training sessions will also be part of the NHS Track and Trace scheme and be strongly encouraged to follow some individual measures (such as bringing your own bottle, thoroughly washing your hands before and after training, keeping a safety distance to other members at all times, avoiding direct contact with other members, wearing a face mask when not playing...). Coaches and organising members will also be required to wear a face mask. We are also considering the purchase of temperature checking devices.
We will have Covid Officers and team captains ensuring that these measures are kept.
Overall, we will make sure all the government safety guidelines are respected, and will also implement our own. If any club member does not respect these rules, then we will have to implement a 14 day self isolation period from club activities, to ensure the safety of other members.

Let's not forget... SOCIALS!
One thing we definitely take pride in is how awesome we are at throwing great socials! From clubbing, ice skating, organising meals, celebrating birthdays, Christmas and Halloween... to house parties or attending the annual varsity afterparty event, hosting an awards night, going to Croatia, annual tournaments in Amsterdam or even if it's just a night at the SU after training, everyone is welcome to come along! We have recently partnered with the Birkett Tap, a pub that offers us variety of opportunities and deals exclusive to our club members: whether you drink or not, you are sure to enjoy all the quiz nights, karaoke nights, wings nights...
