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. 

If you would like more information on how to join, please contact kev@ipswichvc.org.uk

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.

Beach Volleyball Sessions

Every Wednesday (weather permitting) from 6pm – 8pm, we invite you to come and play beach volleyball at the copleston centre for as little as £2 per session. 

If you are interested in playing please email Kev or message Josh Raven on Facebook.  

The beach volleyball court is located off Foxhall road, Ipswich IP4 5HD  (signposted copleston centre). 

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.
