Welcome to GGV Leiden! We are a small and friendly volleyball club with several teams in the regional league. Becoming a member of GGV means a lot more than just playing volleyball. We organize a lot of social activities throughout the year and we play volleyball at the beach in Katwijk every summer. If you’re interested in becoming part of the GGV family, just fill in this contact form and we’ll get back to you.
GGV is being represented with several teams in the Nevobo competition (playing in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th classes). There are also recreational groups of players who regularly participate in various recreational tournaments.
Our weekly trainings take place on Monday or Tuesday evenings from 7.30 PM to 10.30 PM. Each training session has a duration of 90 minutes. Except for the first ladies team, every team trains once a week.
The training takes place at Vlietland College (Apollolaan 262, 2324 BZ Leiden).
The Nevobo competition starts in September and ends in April. Normally, our home matches take place on Friday nights (starting at 9 PM) at the Vijfmeihal (Boshuizerlaan 3, 2321 SG Leiden) and sometimes a match takes place at Gemini-Kangeroes in Voorschoten.
During the summer holidays we play beachvolleyball in Katwijk.
GGV is about more than just simply playing volleyball on a fairly serious level. Besides this, we value the social contact within GGV and among its members. Whether it’s having a beer or two with the rest of your team after playing a match or inviting people from other teams to a Summer barbecue or salsa workshop. Better yet, our events committee (a.k.a. the ‘Accie’) tends to organize fun activities throughout the year, which include: preparing tapas, taking tennis-lessons, weekend trips and our weekly get-together over a drink.
Board and committees
At GGV, you can join several committees.
Board: the board of GGV consists (at least) of a chairman, a secretary and a treasurer. They take care of the daily management of GGV.
Technical Committee (TC): this committee decides which player is joining which team.
Activities Committee (Accie): the Accie organises all sorts of events during the year.
Tenue Committee: this committee makes sure everyone has the right tenue to play the matches.
Blok: this committee publishes the club-magazine. They collect all the gossip and funfacts about the GGV members.

The new season will start at the end of August, and we do have room for more players. If you want you can leave your information on this contact form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
