MaVIS tournament a success for Suffolk teams 

Ipswich Volleyball Club hosted the first of 8 indoor volleyball tournaments today at Northgate Sports Centre. The event saw 13 teams (around 80 players) from all over Suffolk attend to compete against each other.

Divisions 1 winners Lakenheath managed to complete the day without a loss and came overall first in the tournament followed by Diss in second place and Ipswich 1 in third place.

Division 2 saw Stow Stingers take first place on points difference to Stow Aces and Dissasters. The Stow Stingers team had several players making their volleyball tournament debut for the club which will make the win even more sweeter for the successful Stingers team.

Volleyball Season Starts NOW!

After what seems like a long summer since the last indoor session, both Ipswich Volleyball Club and Northgate Sports Centre have been working hard at preparing ready for the new season which begins this week!!

Ipswich Volleyball Club turns 40 years old this season and what a birthday treat to be upgrading the facilities in a new venue. 


The sports centre has been fitted out with two practice courts and a full size competition court. This gives Northgate the best volleyball facilities in Suffolk. Ipswich VC begin training this week on Wednesday (6th Sept)  at 7pm – 9pm, make sure you come along and make the most of the new facilities. All abilities are welcome from complete beginners to expert players.

Ipswich take home more gold!

Ipswich players (Cat, Michelle, Lukas & Kev) entered into the Norwich Spikers mixed 2017 volleyball tournament. After 5 wins and 1 loss they managed to win the tournament on points scored with more than a 40 point difference to the closest team. 


The team started strong with some great volleyball in the morning, winning every game comfortably. The afternoon saw some tougher opposition and Ipswich lost one game by only 1 point. 
Thank you to Norwich Spikers for hosting the friendly outdoor tournament. Ipswich are super happy to have picked up gold for men’s and mixed.

Ipswich Vs Norwich Spikers

Ipswich men played Norwich Spikers for their last NVL game of the season. A 3 – 0 loss means that the local rivals were the only team in the league the men failed to beat throughout the season. The loss puts Ipswich 5th in the league with Newmarket finishing in 4th. Norwich have a good chance of promotion finishing in the play off position, 2nd. Cambridge VC win division 3 for automatic promotion into division 2. 

Ipswich men played a total of 14 games in the 2016/17 season and recorded a very respectable 7 win and 7 losses.
