About the Club

University of Manchester volleyball club (UMVC) is a well established sports club that praises itself on our BUCS successes in both women’s and men’s teams.

We welcome everyone, whether you have 10 years experience or no experience there is always a place for you within the club.

Playing volleyball with Umvc is a chance to meet fellow students, keep fit, compete in a sport at University level and a rest bite from studies!

We also provide the opportunity for experienced players to play at a high level with a local National League team and any player can aim to reach this level within their time at the university.

Club Philosophy

At the heart of UMVC is the belief university sports should be highly competitive yet maintain a friendly atmosphere whereby everyone is welcome. When it comes to the club’s philosophy; communication, team work and individual commitment are essential components of achieving success at both an individual and club level.

Although the main objective is to excel in the BUC’s leagues, the club is also committed to attending external tournaments and local leagues fixtures, to ensure everyone within the club has an opportunity to develop themselves through gaining valuable experience both on and off the court.
