This recreational volleyball competition is a six aside indoor game, run by Pioneer Volleyball Club Incorporated and played on Thursday evenings at Pioneer Leisure Centre. Teams may be mixed or single sex. The emphasis is on fun and enjoyment for all! We cater for anyone from experienced players to those wishing to learn, as the competition is structured according to skill level. Remember that this is recreational volleyball and that you’re not playing for the “Championship of the world as we know it”. We expect you to play your volleyball with an appropriate attitude i.e good, positive and healthy. Cheating will not be tolerated.


Games run from 21st October – 9th December 2021, then resume after the holiday break – dates TBC. Games are 1 hour long from 6:30pm, 7:30pm or 8:30pm. Your team will play at a different time each week. If you have a 6:30 pm game, please help the Pioneer Leisure Centre staff put up the nets, and help take them down if you have the late game. We are again offering a free coaching/skills night to Summer Volleyball players again on 7th October. The first match of Round 1 commences Thursday, 21st October (this will also include grading, where teams are graded according to their ability, at the sole discretion of the organisers, and then placed into a division of six teams). You will play 3 rounds each of 5 games. The season finishes with a finals night – date TBC. All teams play on this night.

Please note all dates are subject to confirmation and change.
