Bury Bobcats

Volleyball is loads of fun and a very friendly game. It’s the only high-energy, no contact, mixed team sport you can play indoors and outdoors - whatever your ability.  Now is a great time to give volleyball a go and find out why it is one of the top three most-played sports in the world!

Whether you’re a complete beginner and want to try the game for the first time, or you haven’t played for a while and want to start playing again, male or female, these are the sessions for you!

The Sunday sessions are run with a fun atmosphere and led by Andrew Whitefield.  They’re at Mid Suffolk Leisure Centre in Stowmarket.  To join the sessions, people should come along to Reception at the Leisure Centre and the staff will point you in the right direction.  Newcomers are always welcome.  Please try to arrive ten minutes early for the first session so that we can make our introductions and get the most out of our time on the court!
The Sunday indoor sessions run from September until the end of April and are suitable for adults and high school students and cost £3 each for those aged 18 and under and £6 per session for those aged over 18.  Alternatively, under 19s can pay £6.75 per month by standing order (all year round) and the adult standing order price is £13.50.  For details of sessions for younger players, please see the Juniors page.
Once it's warmer outside, the sessions move outdoors on The Rec for the summer.
