WELCOME TO SUVC!
If you are interested in playing Volleyball, you are now in the right place.
Here is a summary of all the information you may need. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions!
Having won Sport Swansea's Most Improved Club of the Year in 2013, it is our goal to keep on excelling, always ensuring we provide our players with the greatest experiences. Since Volleyball is quite an international sport, we have a wonderfully diverse club, counting on over 10 nationalities. Our people are lovely, friendly and engaged and they will surely make you feel welcomed and included from day one.
Regardless of your level of experience, we are confident SUVC is the place for you —all we simply expect is that you share our enthusiasm and interest in this wonderful sport!—. There are two joining routes available for you (scroll down for more information):
If you have never played before, you are welcome to our open sessions. They are dedicated to beginners so that you will get to play casually, meet people and receive some coaching. We also have friendly matches against other different universities' beginner's team throughout the year for you. If you would like to improve your skills, this is a great opportunity!
If you are an experienced athlete (normally 1-2 years of experience minimum), we have team training sessions for our 4 BUCS teams, including Men's 1st and 2nd team and Women's 1st and 2nd team. The first teams train twice a week and then compete on exciting matches every Wednesday all throughout the year, including the well-known Welsh Varsity against Cardiff in April-May. The second teams train once a week and then compete on exciting BUCS matches every Wednesday all throughout the year. They will also compete in the local Welsh League.
