University of Essex Volleyball



Our Volleyball club consists of 4 teams, 2 women’s and 2 men’s. Our Women and Men’s 1st teams are performance teams with scholars, however if there are exceptional players, recruitment to these teams is possible! Then we have Women and Men’s 2nd teams which will be formed from tryouts and all are open to join! We also have Just Play Volleyball sessions for those who want to learn or those who want to play casually.

This past academic year has been an exciting one! Big congrats to our Women’s 1st team who won BUCS trophy and their league! They accomplished this without dropping a set and they have been promoted to the premier league. Men’s 1st also were also top of their league giving them a promotion from Division 1. Women’s 2nd team came 2nd in their division and made it to semi-finals in the Conference Cup.
