About Volleyball (Men's)
What do you do?
We are the University of Northampton Volleyball Club! And we invite all students, whether you’ve been playing volleyball for years or want to try something new, to join UONVC at our training or socials! Like mentioned we play volleyball which is a 6-a-side game on a court separated by a net and the objective is to ground the ball on the other side of the net using 3 touches as a team.
What league/ competitions do you play in
Following up a fantastic year competing in the local league, which our mixed team won. This year the Men's Volleyball Team are returning to BUCS, whilst attempting to repeat our success in the Local League with our mixed team.
Socials are held on Wednesdays and sometimes Fridays and we will inform everyone on the Thursday prior to the social and post on WhatsApp and social media the location and time of the social and what the theme is. Even if you aren’t part of the club everyone’s invited.

All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students’ Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
