Inter-college Volleyball: League

 

Oxford's Volleyball League 2014

Oxford University Volleyball Club is organising the college volleyball league once again. If you are at an Oxford college, department or a member of Oxford Brookes University, why not try and become volleyball champion in Oxford?

Eligibility

We welcome teams from Oxford colleges and departments, as well as any teams formed at Oxford Brookes University. Students and staff are equally eligible to play.

Format

  • We play a full single competition where every team plays each other once in the group, followed by finals between the top 4 teams.
  • The teams are divided into 3 levels:

Level 1: Beginners (no experience needed, no club players allowed)

Level 2: Intermediate (some experience, max 2 club players)

Level 3: Advanced (for players with experience)

  • Matches are best of 3 sets to 25 points or 10 min per set.
  • The winner will get 2 points, the looser 0. If two teams have the same amount of points, the direct encounter will determine the position.
  • We only have limited court time at Iffley Sport Centre, so please be on time! We encourage the teams to arrive 15 min before their match to warm up on the running tracks. There will be a 10 min warm-up on in the gym before each match.
  • When a team is more than 10 minutes late for the start of the match, this team will lose the match.
  • The games will be played on a standard indoor court with six players on court for each side. Teams are of mixed gender, and at least one women must be on court for each team at all times.
  • Standard indoor rules will be applied.
  • A team is allowed any reasonable number of substitutes, who will rotate onto the court at the service.
