Want to play recreationally, or at a competitive level? VU Sports Centre caters for each type of volley ball player. Besides recreational practice there is also a student volley ball club: SVU Volleybal. They play matches, but are also very active when it comes to tournaments, parties and weekend trips.
Volley ball is a technical ball game with the main objective being to land the ball on the opponent’s side of the court. You are allowed to have three passes before the ball has to go over the net (again). Indoor volley ball is played with six against six while on the beach you play two against two.
Playing at SVU Volleyball is an unforgettable experience! The competition offers a lot of well-playing opponents, it's great fun and the club organizes a lot of activities like the 24-hour tournament and the Night tournament.
At the VU Sports Centre you can choose three types of volley ball. You can play recreationally or competitively indoor, and outdoor you can play beach volley ball.
These training practices are excellent for people who have not (yet) mastered the basics of volley ball, and who would like to learn the techniques. But also if you’ve already mastered the technique you are welcome to participate. Just keep in mind that the level is not that high. Recreational practice takes places once a week and is accessible for players of all levels. Recreational volley ball is included in the all-in-membership, so you can participate in the training practice without additional costs. You could also buy a separate volley ball plan. Check the schedule to see when the recreational training practice takes place exactly.
Anyone who would like to train more frequently than once a week, can subscribe in the volley ball club of the VU Sports Centre.
SVU Volleybal is the biggest student volley ball club of Amsterdam. They have eight women’s teams and four men’s teams playing in the Nevobo legue.
