Welcome to VK Barnet Volleyball Club!

Updated 12 Nov 2011

VK Barnet is north London's premier Volleyball club.

We train indoors every Wednesday evening (September till June) from 8pm to 10pm at the Queen Elizabeth Leisure Centre, Barnet, North London EN5 5RR (click here for a map).

We are affiliated to the Hertfordshire Volleyball Association and we currently run two Men's teams one in Division 1, the other in Division 2, one team in the Ladies' Division and a Mixed team.

Over the years the club has been very successful at all levels (winning both Men's Div.1 and 2) and whilst we have developed several international players, we make a point of welcoming all standards of player from absolute beginners to internationals.

VK Junior wins British Beach Volleyball Title

Posted by Sean on 09 Jul 2014

Sandbanks 2014-4
VK Junior Ryan Poole showed, at the weekend, just what a versatile and upcoming volleyball talent he is as along with his partner Harry Jones (Wessex VC) he was crowned British Under 18 Beach Volleyball Champion at a tournament in Sandbanks, Dorset.

Ryan and Harry also narrowly missed out on a second title as they finished runners up in the Under 20 event, a remarkable achievement competing against much older players as both boys will have another 4 or 5 years competing in that particular age group !

Also at the tournament, for their first taste of competitive beach volleyball, were VK Juniors Rhys, William, Chris and Adam.
Will and Rhys paired up but Rhys suffered an early injury and had to withdraw but with a new partner, Will managed to win his first set and then his first match on sand.
Likewise for Chris and Adam. Through continued improvement during the day they won their first set and then their first match on sand.

Both pairs expressed afterwards how much they had enjoyed the experience and wanted to play more beach. Eric and Sean are trying to coordinate some Junior sessions up at the beach courts in St Albans though transportation seems to be the biggest hurdle. Please speak to either if you are interested.

VK Juniors star in London Youth Games

LYG Finals Team 2014
Several of the club’s juniors (boys and girls) recently took part in the London Youth Games tournament, playing in the Barnet and Enfield teams. The Enfield boys team managed to win their group and qualified for the Semi-finals at Crystal Palace last Saturday where, without 2 of their key starting 6 players, they still managed to give Haringay (based at St Thomas More School Volleyball Academy) a good run for their money – taking 19 points in the 2nd set !

Considering the team only had 6 dedicated training sessions in the lead up to the games this is a considerable achievement – well done boys ! All of the boys who played in the Semi-final will be eligible to play again in next year’s tournament.
