Volleyball In York 

Playing volleyball for more than 40 years, York VC was formed by GB volleyball player Pete Bibby in 1974. The club have played in the Yorkshire Leagues for many years. In 2009 the Men's team entered the National Volleyball League, with the Women following in 2014. We now have seven teams competing across the NVL, Yorkshire Leagues and HEYVA.

York Volleyball Club is a Volley 2 ClubMark accredited club. We welcome everyone. Whether you would like to play in a team or just for fun, whatever your age or ability, we have a session to suit you. 

We supply coaching at each of our training sessions, delivered by registered Volleyball England coaches, with separate junior/beginner sessions on Fridays. 

During the indoor season (September - April) there are team-specific training sessions. In the summer we mix everyone together, play in summer tournaments and host a popular mixed tournament, the York VolleyFest.

All new players are welcome. Get in touch and we can advise you which sessions will meet your needs.
