Members of the club, especially in the recreational teams, come from many different countries around the world our ambition is that volleyball is a way to build friendships and helping to integrate in Lund.
Currently we are running three men’s teams (Herrar A+B+C) and three women’s teams (Damer A+B+C) at the competitive level. For our youth members we play at the U20 girls (under the age of 20 etc.), U16/18 and U13/15 levels, each with boys and girls teams. For the youngest aspiring volleyball kids we also offer Kidsvolley, a co-ed, modified version of volleyball designed for kids aged 6 to 9. For kids age 3-5 we offer a fun activity called VolleyBompa once a week.
Where we play
Most of our practices and matches take place in Fäladshallen (map). Some youth practices are held in other gyms. The women’s and men’s A teams play their matches in Idrottshallen (map).
