Covid-19 Updates

Our COVID-19 plan

Unfortunately, following the recent Covid regulation changes, we will not be able to train in indoor sports halls for the near future. This has pushed us to postpone our usual training schedule and all squad trials until these regulations change once again. But fear not! The committee has been working hard to think of fun and exciting ways to keep us all playing the sport we love and to keep our community strong.

This term all members will have access to outdoor hard court coached sessions, informal grass sessions, an intraclub minileague, beach volleyball days, and much more. It goes without saying a strong social calendar is on the cards. We'll get to continue seeing all the faces we love... and of course many new ones!

As soon as we are allowed to we will return to our nice, warm sports hall, but in the mean time we believe this will reinvigorate the club!

We will expect all our member to comply with Volleyball Englands COVID-19 code of behaviour.

This code applies to everyone who takes part in volleyball activity in England as well as those who represent England as volleyball players. This is in addition to existing Volleyball England Codes of Conduct.

  • All participants should sanitise their hands prior to the start of activity.

  • Volleyballs can be shared but the sharing of other equipment should be limited where possible.

  • Where equipment such as volleyballs are shared, participants must practice strict hand hygiene before and after use and the equipment must be cleared before use by another person.

  • Players should refrain from spitting or rinsing out their mouths and should maintain respiratory etiquette if they cough or sneeze.

  • Players, coaches, officials and spectators should refrain from shouting.

If a participant continually breaks this code of behaviour, they will be asked to leave the activity.
