- Welcome to the official website of the University of Leeds Volleyball Club!
ABOUT THE CLUB
We are the University of Leeds’s most international student club which has grown vastly over recent years. Whether you have International squad experience, played for the LUUVC team last season, or have never played a game in your life but want to give it a go, we would like to welcome you into the club this year!
With the aim of raising its performance to represent the University at the highest level, we have 3 teams playing in the BUCS league: A Women’s 1st team playing in Northern Division 1A, a Women’s 2nd team playing in the Northern division 3B and a Men’s 1st team taking gold in the Northern 2B division this year and being promoted to the Northern 1A division!
This coming year we are expanding the club further, creating a developmental Men’s 2nd team. This team will not be a BUCS team; however, it will compete locally against other universities in the Yorkshire Championship League.

As a society, we aren't all about playing volleyball… We like to let loose and enjoy ourselves on a regular basis!
Our socials aim to create an environment for all club members to meet, party together and make some great friends for life! We want everyone to feel included and offer a number of chilled out sober socials alongside ones where we strut our stuff on a night out!
The club also runs an annual tour every Easter to the sunny shores of Porec, Croatia or Rimini, Italy alongside a number of other sports teams in the university and many others across the country. Set in an exclusive resort with sport venues on site and bars and clubs at your doorstep, the week offers a great opportunity to get to know your teammates and club members.
