The University of Portsmouth Volleyball Club is a very sociable club with both men’s and women’s competitive teams benefiting from excellent coaching. We are an open, welcoming club with a strong social element and no judgement towards beginners or less experienced players.
We compete in the official BUCS leagues as well as the annual Varsity against Southhampton and a few more casual beach tournaments.

Joining our Facebook page will ensure you stay up to date with anything and everything that is UPSU volleyball club. This will include training sessions, socials, match information, and any extra events that happen throughout the year (such as meals, tournaments, charity events, and more!). This is also just a great way to stay connected with everyone involved in the club.
We are lucky enough to have a qualified volleyball coach who will be running our training sessions to ensure that everyone can get the most out of each session they attend. The volleyball club currently have two training sessions per week,
Tuesdays – 8pm – 10pm @ Spinnaker Sports Centre
Saturdays – 3:30pm – 5:30pm @ Priory School PO4 0DL
For those who may need help with directions, Spinnaker sports centre is located opposite the Student union. Priory school is a 20-minute walk from the university centre.
For those of you who do find yourself wanting to be a part of the club (Hopefully all of you ;)), the membership cost for the club is £67.50 for the year. The membership covers all the training sessions for the year, alongside being coached by a qualified volleyball coach; its covers your insurance during training; entrance into the official BUCS university league; and travel to and from matches. This is a one off payment that can be paid online or you can pop into the union shop and pay there.
Beginners Volleyball Sessions
We understand that everyone who is interested in playing volleyball will be of varying levels of skill and experience, so to account for people who are new to the sport or are looking for something more casual, there are the beginner volleyball sessions that run every Tuesday from 7pm – 8pm in the Spinnaker sports centre. These sessions cost £15 for the first term up until December (10 sessions included) and then the same again for the second term up until April (Another 10 sessions). In these sessions we will teach you the basics of volleyball and how to play with the use of lots of fun games and activities, all leading up to a big tournament before Christmas we have with the whole of the volleyball club. The sessions held in the second term will be a chance for you to further develop what you have learnt while still having a good time with friends
