About Our Club

Here at Heriot-Watt Volleyball Club, we welcome all players of all abilities. We have many opportunities to compete within our BUCS teams as well as participate in recreational sessions to play for fun, meet new people and develop your skills! We have two men’s teams and two women’s teams, with first teams competing in Scottish division 2A.
