Social Volley

Social Volley aims to remove the barriers of entry to Volleyball and creates a fun relaxed environment that supports anyone interested in taking up or returning to the sport. These sessions are run by individuals or groups inside or outside of volleyball clubs, and are open to anyone to join.

The emphasis is on fun, socialising, keeping fit and making friends. If someone who plays Social Volley wishes to compete they can progress to more competitive section of clubs to fulfil that desire. 

Social volley opportunities include kids blitzes and fun sessions, courses for beginners of any age and gender, courses or fun sessions for former players, recreational sessions for intermediate and advanced players, and any other activity that brings people close to volleyball without involving commitment in a club.

Volleyball Ireland aims to support these activities, to grow the Irish volleyball community and to allow every kid and every adult looking for a place where to play volleyball to find their group and enjoy the sport.

Associate club affiliation

Volleyball Ireland actively supports social volley activities with equipment, courses for tutors and volunteers, public liability, insurance and promotion. To be eligible for these benefits, initiatives must be affiliated with Volleyball Ireland. The fee for associate club affiliation is €25, and it will allow the club to access events, courses, insurance and many other opportunities.

To get your affiliation fill in the 2021/22 Associate Club Affiliation form and to create a personal profile on GoMembership (for club administration).

Work in progress…

Volleyball Ireland is working on mapping all the recreational and social volleyball initiatives around Ireland. Because the Irish volleyball ecosystem is small but quickly developing, we aim to grow our knowledge on initiatives that are in place and that we are not yet aware of, as they may be not connected to clubs or not directly affiliated to Volleyball Ireland.

If you are aware of any social volleyball initiatives in your area,  share this knowledge with us, in order to help those looking for a place where to play volleyball. Contact our Participation Officer Amanda at . We are collecting data about where these sessions are happening, possibly with contact details of a person in charge, so that if we receive requests from people looking for a volleyball session, we could put them directly in contact with the right person.

With your support, we hope to bring more and more people into the Irish volleyball community to enjoy this sport.
