Beginner’s Volleyball:  

The UoB Volleyball Club caters for high lever players as well as beginners. Never played volleyball before or don’t feel confident enough to play with our 1st teams but would like to know more about it and play for fun? Then we’ve got our Beginner’s Session for you. Here you can learn to play volleyball as we teach you basic techniques and rules of the game. If you do well, you may even have the opportunity to get a place in our 1st teams.


To join the session you still need to be a member of the Volleyball Club for insurance purposes etc.




Both 1st teams are coached by Polish ex-professional player Artur Kwiecinski.

Saturday learn-to-play sessions are coached by senior members of the Volleyball Club.
