Welcome to the University of Sussex's Volleyball Club Page!

Sussex University Volleyball is a highly successful, competitive, and multinational club. Whatever level you're at and whatever you want to get out of Volleyball, we offer something for everyone! We have three fun/beginners session every week with Volleyball Active Us as well as competitive team trainings for those who'd like to compete in tournaments. This year we will also form an intermediate team to participate in a local leage for those who has an intermediate level and would like to get more court experience. We would set up to 3 teams depending on how many people we get after the tryouts this weekend!

We have a fairly new but extremely enthusiastic committee this year! If you need to contact any of us, you can email the Volleyball email (volleyball@clubs.sussexstudent.com) or if needs be approach us directly through facebook:

We want everyone to feel happy and accepted by everyone in our club so we can all get the most out of our season! This includes those who may not have made the first squad but still want to be involved in the sport, we want everyone to love the sport as much as we do!

We also run some Beach Volleyball opportunities, no matter what the weather, there will be opportunities to play socially and competitively on the sand.




We try to attend the Active US Sessions as a team too, this way we can help with players of all abilities and raise awareness of the sport! We habe browed our Active US sessions schedule this year, We have 3 weekly sessions on Wednesdays 12-1pm, on Fridays 8-10pm and on Saturdays 4-6pm.


Both our men's and women's teams have been very successful over the past couple of years. With both the women and the men in a strong position in Division 1, this year is looking very exciting! Along with leagues run by BUCS, we also compete in the Volleyball England Student Cup and Varsity against Brighton Uni.

Achievements over the past year include:

Women's team placed 10th in the Student Cup finals hosted in Norwich

Women's team placed first in the BUCS Trophy finals and First in our league.


Women's team winnin team of the year.


Men's team finishing 2nd in the BUCS Division 1.

During last year, we had a wide variety of socials, from fancy dress, clubbing to movie nights and dinner parties. Volleyball is probably the most international club on campus, which for one thing makes for a great variety of dishes at dinner parties and on the other hand we know how to make everyone welcome and feel included. We do socials for those who like a good night out, as well as more laid back ones. As mentioned before, with Volleyball, there is something for everyone!


Finally, this year we hope to continue the club's success over the last few years. So if you have any questions on trials, social practices, or any questions that you might have regarding the club, please send us an email or contact us on our facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/UniversityOfSussexVolleyball/ )


This year we aim to take a more active part in the leaves Scheme!

What is the Leaf Scheme?
Leaf awards reflect contributions of the society or sports club towards its members, the University of Sussex Students’ Union, the University of Sussex, the local community and the public. Leaves can be attained at bronze, silver or gold levels by meeting three, six or nine criteria. Leaves apply for an academic year as a symbol of what the present committee have achieved.

Groups can work towards nine leaves:

Below are the Leaves that have been achieved by previous committees:

Inclusivity Leaf

The Inclusivity Leaf is awarded to groups who have taken positive steps to increase the diversity of their membership and include as many members as possible. They have made specific efforts to include students that don’t traditionally engage, without ignoring or neglecting their current membership or other student groups.


Social Leaf

The Social leaf is awarded to groups who have taken active steps to include as many members as possible and regularly engage in various social activities, including those organised by - and with - other societies/sports clubs.


Communications Leaf

The Communications Leaf is awarded to groups who communicate with their members and the student body regularly and in innovate ways.
