Cambridge Volleyball Club is a non-profit organisation, affiliated with Volleyball England, and is run by volunteers, players and coaches who are passionate about volleyball.
Our mission is to inspire participation and to encourage development of volleyball through coaching, games and competitions.
We currently offer volleyball for both men and women at a wide range of levels; from complete beginners, right up to the National League. Whatever your level, we will have a squad to suit your ability.
The Club is run for the benefit of all members, to enable them to learn and play volleyball to the level that their ability and commitment allows.
Training with more than one squad is strictly at the invitation and discretion of the coaches (Fees applied).
Permission should always be sought before attending or training with another squad with which you do not normally train.
If you are interested in joining the club, please
