INVERNESS VOLLEYBALL CLUB

About Us

We are always looking for new members (over 16s only).

IVC have a large range of abilities.  We play in a mixed league so both Men and Women are welcome. Volleyball is percieved as a sport for tall people, this is a myth, we have a range of heights in our club. in seasons 2008, 2009 & 2010, we entered only one team in the North Grampian District League although in previous years we have had enough members to enter two teams.

Season 2009-2010: We won the league and came runners up in the cup!

2010/2011: Unfortunately no honours for season 2010-2011.

2011-2012: We are entering a team in ther local league and cup competitons.

 

A Brief history

Inverness Volleyball Club was set up in October 1988 by members of the Inverness High School’s Volleyball Club. Led by ‘woodwork’ teacher Ian Hamilton, the club soon grew with members joining from the wider volleyball community in Inverness.

The club initially trained and played at the High School and entered a team in the Scottish Open Tournament in Perth and played friendly matches against various teams.

From these humble beginnings it soon became clear that this would not be enough to satisfy the passion for volleyball and a successful application was made to join the Banff and North Grampian District League. The ever growing club started to realise its potential when it won it’s first ‘domestic’ trophy in 1991 – the North Grampian District Plate.

In the mid to late '90s, IVC became one of the strongest clubs in the league, successfully running two teams in the district competitions, and also having one successful season in National competition - promotion from Division 5 would have been achieved but for the loss of several key players, and the first attempt at National Cup Competition saw the team reaching the Plate semi-final.


The past two or three years have been a difficult time with club membership dropping, and only managing to enter one team into the District league.
