We are a men’s volleyball club in London offering a welcoming atmosphere for beginners and a chance for pros to prove their talents at league matches. Our Club thrives on the diversity of its membership and we are very proud of the values and strength gained from having a mixed collection of players (predominantly gay, but inclusive of straight) from the UK and from more than 20 nations.
What we’re all about
The London Spikers offers coached volleyball sessions once a week during the weekday at all levels. Depending on the level, coaches stress different points to improve on such as technique, positioning, attack, defense, and strategy. Coaches form a vital part of our club both teaching wise and socially. Learn more about our teams and their different levels.
On Sunday afternoons at Mulbery Academy in Bethnal Green, teams play non-coached social sets. It’s a great time to play in a more relaxed setting and then hit the pub in Shoreditch.
The London Spikers prides itself on not only being a sports club, but also a social club. Many members have met through the club and become life-long friends. We hold parties throughout the year and anyone is invited to attend. For more on our events, follow us on Facebook or check out our Event Calendar.
SUMMER IN THE PARK
During the summer time from May to Aug, the club is on off season. We meet once a week for training, but on Sundays we head to Hyde Park and set up nets and play throughout the entire afternoon. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join, especially prospective members. Learn more about our Summer in the Park.
Throughout the year there are various amateur volleyball tournaments throughout Europe: Barcelona, Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam… just to name a few. Members in the London Spikers often organise teams to play abroad and that’s where a lot of the fun, bonding, and infamy take place.
OUR ANNUAL LIVE TOURNAMENT
Every October we organise and hold our annual LIVE International tournament. Teams from all over Europe (and abroad) come to attend and play. In addition to a day of competing against one another, we throw a pre and after party. It’s a fabulous event that we are especially proud of. Learn more about LIVE.
