About the Club

Find out about the history of the club and where we are going.


The club started in its present form in 1997. Originally, it was just a men's team playing volleyball in the local SADVA (Southampton And District Volleyball Association) League. This team was formed from employees and friends of Roke Manor Research in Romsey. During the early days the men's team was successful at winning the local league, but this was followed by several years of decline when older players left the team. In the mid 90's there was a resurgence when they won the SADVA League Cup. At about this time, a decision was made to convert the team into a club, and several other successes were achieved in the SADVA League. Today we boast multiple Men's and Ladies' teams, who represent the club in the local and county leagues, and a current membership of over 40.

Principle club aim

Our aim is to teach and promote a good standard of competitive volleyball, in a friendly atmosphere, and get as many people playing volleyball as possible. We welcome all levels of players from beginners and improvers, to National League Standard.


Local League (SADVA)

Roke Volleyball Club enter multiple teams into both the men's and the ladies' local league. The aims of each team vary between development for players new to the sport, and competitive for experienced players.

County League (HVA)

We enter one men's team in the HVA league. This is a competitive team, intended to challenge our best players. We also enter a combined Roke/SVC ladies' team in the HVA league, with the aim of developing players toward playing National League.
