This recreational volleyball competition is a six aside indoor game, run by Pioneer Volleyball Club Incorporated and played on Thursday evenings at Pioneer Leisure Centre. Teams may be mixed or single sex. The emphasis is on fun and enjoyment for all! We cater for anyone from experienced players to those wishing to learn, as the competition is structured according to skill level. Remember that this is recreational volleyball and that you’re not playing for the “Championship of the world as we know it”. We expect you to play your volleyball with an appropriate attitude ie good, positive and healthy. Cheating will not be tolerated.


There are 17 matches, 6 before Christmas, then resuming after the holiday break in late January to finish in March 2019. Games are 1 hour long from 6:30pm, 7:30pm or 8:30pm. Your team will play at a different time each week. If you have a 6:30 pm game, please help the Pioneer Leisure Centre staff put up the nets, and help take them down if you have the late game. We are again offering a free coaching night to Summer Volleyball players again on 4th October (TBC). The game on the first playing night, 18th October (TBC), will be a grading game, where teams are graded according to their ability, at the sole discretion of the organisers, and then placed into a division of six teams. The first match of Round 1 commences the following Thursday. You will play 3 rounds each of 5 games. The season finishes with a finals night at the end of March 2019. All teams play on this night.
