Stowmarket Volleyball Club was founded in 1976 and has been one of the top clubs in Suffolk ever since. We have both ladies and men's teams and compete in the National Cup and Plate, Eastern Region tournaments, Suffolk Cup and Essex League and tournaments in Ipswich during the indoor season, as well as various beach and grass tournaments in the summer.

During the indoor season, from September until the end of April. we run the following sessions:

  • Sunday open sessions - for adults and high school students, male and female, from 6-8pm at Mid Suffolk Leisure Centre in Stowmarket. Newcomers are always welcome.
  • Thursday ladies sessions from 8-9.30pm at Stowupland High School Sports Centre. Newcomers are always welcome.
  • Wednesday competitive men's sessions from 8-10pm at Stowupland High. If you're interested in coming along to the Wednesday sessions, please contact us as due to matches and occasional exams in the hall there are some weeks when we don't train.

Throughout the summer, when the evenings are light, and the weather is good, from mid-May until the end of August, we play on The Rec in Stowmarket on Tuesdays and Sundays. These sessions are free to all! We also play at various tournaments around the country.

We also have a sister-club, Stingers, who are currently foucssed on having fun playing volleyball at a recreational level. During the indoor season, they also train at Stowupland High School from 7-9pm on Tuesdays.

Both clubs are always on the look-out for new players, so if you're interested in joining either, please contact Stow VC or contact Stingers.
