BG Lions London volleyball club is a social cause, tracing its roots in the parks of East London. It all started back in 2017 when a group of friends, all of whom working busy City jobs, found relief from the working week stress by playing grass volleyball over the hot summer weekends. Our passion for the sport did not grow any weaker and in the early days of 2018 we decided that the time has come to form an official volleyball club, which is to start its journey from the lowest levels of amateur volleyball in England.
Our Club is open to people of all backgrounds and abilities!
Our mission is to provide opportunities to the hard-working professionals within the City of London to enhance their mental wellbeing via physical exercise and playing their favourite sport. Our practice sessions and home fixtures are taking place late in the evenings during the work week and on weekends and located only a convenient 10-minute journey from the City's high-rise glass buildings.
We are a non-profit organisation and fully-accredited member of Volleyball England and the London Volleyball Association.
