Volleyball: Free summer sessions
If you enjoyed having a go at the volleyball you may be interested in free outdoor recreational volleyball sessions, run by Warwick Sport. You can join in every Thursday from 5.30pm to 8pm, located just behind pitch 2 at Westwood. These free sessions are open to everyone and all abilities are welcome; they’ll also be coaches offering tips and guidance to those who want to learn more about the game.
Warwick Sport also runs a 6 week course, aimed at beginners and casual players, which costs £15.
