Volleyball club Amsterdam
Welcome to the site of the volleyball club Amsterdam. On this page, you'll find a short introduction in English about what kind of club we are, whom to contact for more information and some general information.
If you find anything missing that you'd like to know, don't hesitate to contact us!
Who are we?
Volleyball club Amsterdam is the largest volleyball club in Amsterdam. It has, at present, over 350 members playing at all kinds of levels. We have a wide variety of levels and ages in our club. Our youth department is the largest in the Amsterdam area and continues to grow, especially the 'mini-volleyball' group for kids aged 6-12 is growing rapidly.
Besides our youth department we have teams playing at most levels for both men and women. We've got groups for beginners and for advanced players who want to play in the official league. Next to that, we have a group of recreational players, who practice at our club and play the occasional tournament (about 8 per season) but who don't play in the official competition organised by the volleyball association.
We not only play volleyball at our club, but we also organise several parties each season to have fun with your teammates and other club members whilst having a drink (or two..). For an impression of what those parties are like, take a look at these pictures
Where are we?
Our club is located in the western part of the city, where our two training facilities are and where many of our home games are played. Our main training facility is the Blauwwit hal, located at the Joos Banckersweg, near the intersection of the Jan van Galenstraat and the Admiraal de Ruyterweg in Amsterdam and can be easily reached by both public transport and bicycle (Amsterdam's most used mode of transport!) from most parts of the city. Our other training facility is the Laan van Spartaan, Rinus Michelslaan, near the A10 ring-road and the OLVG West hospital. We practice on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and we play our home matches on Friday evening and Saturday afternoons.

If this has piqued your interest and want to join us for a practice training session, then the best way is to get in touch with our technical committee and they'll be able to give you an idea which group might be best suited for you to join. The first two practice sessions are free of charge and after that, you'll have to make up your mind if you want to join us or not.
