Club Tours & Tournaments

Leicester Volleyball Club regularly compete in various tournaments around the UK and abroad. These are fantastic opportunities for members of the club to socialise and increase their volleyball skills in a relaxed environment. Great fun is had by all, and teams have returned sporting a variety of silverware in the past!


Some of the tournaments frequented by LVC:

Nottingham Open
A recent addition to the list of tournements is the Nottingham open, staged in the wilds of Widmerpool or thereabouts. Grass tournament, mixed teams.

Welsh Open, Aberystwyth
Organised by the university of Wales, this indoor tournament is usually held around February time. Both men and women can compete, and the standard of play is excellent.

Whitefield International, Bath
This grass tournament is held annually in the summer months and is one of the largest grass tournaments about. There are a variety of divisions, with the excellent standard of Division One competing indoors. The weather has thankfully usually been very good over the weekend, and much fun is had by all in this quaint town.

Gloucester
This is also a grass tournament, with a good standard of play and lots of fun. Camping is the way to go, just make sure you don't share a tent with someone who snores!

Kieldrecht, Belgium
The Men of LVC usually make the annual summer trip to Belgium for this tournament. Hiding their true colours under the team name of Inter Milager, they have come back with trophies on many occasions, and some pretty ugly photos too! Needless to say this is a must for the hard crew of the club.

Krefeld, Germany
Leicester is twinned with Krefeld, and there have been many occasions in the past where the two clubs have visited each other and had a weekend packed full of volleyball. It's a great experience meeting other teams and seeing their standards, and much fun is had by all.

Several members of the club also regularly participate in various beach tournaments throughout the summer.
