DIG IT – Recreational Volleyball Sessions

We are delighted to launch a new recreational volleyball session as part of the West Region Dig It programme.  The programme will see a number of drop-in volleyball sessions across the West region aimed at attracting people back to the sport whilst also supporting anyone interested in trying it for the first time.

The first session starts in a little over a week in conjunction with KA leisure in North Ayrshire.  It will be held on a Wednesday 29th of January between 19:00 – 20:00 at the KA Campus St. Matthews Academy, Saltcoats and the first week is free thereafter for a fee of just £2.50 weekly.

SVA regional development officer for the West Blair Pettigrew says “I am really excited about rolling out the Dig It programme, and I am actively looking for clubs and local authorities to get involved.  I am hopeful that we can increase the number of people playing to a level where we can reintroduce a recreational league amongst the local authorities in the West.  I would love to encourage anyone interested to come along and get involved”.

Senior Community Sport officer for KA Leisure Stephen Browning added “We are delighted to be the first provider to sign up to this exciting new recreational volleyball programme.  Volleyball is a very popular game in North Ayrshire with nearly every secondary school playing on a regular basis.  Adding it into our community provision makes perfect sense and we are already looking at adding a second venue”.

This Dig It session requires no booking or special equipment and is open to all age groups over 14.  For more information on this event or if you would like to set up a Dig It session in your area please email our West Regional Development Officer at RDOwest@scottishvolleyball.org.
