Trainings & fees

**COVID-19 return to play update September 2020: please see update a the top of the page, usual training times etc appear below the dotted line for future reference**

Following the release of the Volleyball England Return to Play guidelines, we have been liaising with our venues to determine what will be possible for our indoor play this season. We are pleased to say that we are reinstating team trainings from w/c 21 September 2020 and coaches are in touch with their teams about the specifics of that. It remains to be seen exactly what we can do for league play with the BVA but we are entering 6 teams in the hope that some matches will be possible (3 men, 2 ladies,1 mixed). Until we know the specifics of the BVA matches, we are staying flexible on membership fees and not asking for payment in advance - we will update on that when we know more about the full picture for the season.

We have no plans for Junior or Beginner trainings/courses this season.

We are looking for a suitable available venue for Thursday Club Training night and will update on that in due course.

All return to play is in full alignment with venue and Volleyball England guidance. Our Club policy can be found here.

This year, we will enter three men's, three ladies', one mixed and one junior team in the Berkshire Volleyball Association (BVA) league.  In addition, we have a ladies' team in the National Volleyball League.

We also run beginners' courses and junior sessions. If you're a beginner or a junior and you're interested in learning to play volleyball, please get in touch.

Please note that you need to be invited by a coach before joining a team training; do get in touch if you're interested.


Please do contact us before coming to a training for the first time to make sure there's space and that you go to the right session for you.

Ladies and men's team fees include include the annual (£40) OVC membership and all team trainings, but exclude Thursday club sessions. The variation in team fees reflects the differing match and training fees incurred by each team.
