Richmond Volleyball Club is a nonprofit organization dedicated to developing athletes of all ages for amateur volleyball competition. The purpose of RVC is to promote interest in the sport of volleyball, provide training in the skills and techniques of volleyball, and foster teamwork, sportsmanship and an appreciation for health and wellness.
The Richmond Volleyball Club, a private, not-for-profit organization, was founded in 1981 when two area leagues, TRAVL and Fan League, merged and opened what was RVC’s East location at 3300 West Marshall Street.
The popularity of league play at RVC grew tremendously during the 1980’s, resulting in a much needed expansion. In the fall of 1991, RVC West, with six courts at 1907 Westmoreland Street, opened its doors to the membership. These two locations, housing a total of ten courts, served RVC until January, 2010. After a long search for the right location, the Board of Directors purchased and renovated RVC’s current home at 2921 Byrdhill Rd. This location boasts 12 indoor courts and outdoor space for volleyball, tailgating and more, making RVC one of the largest volleyball-dedicated facilities in the world.
Seven full-time and numerous part-time employees operate the club. A volunteer Board of Directors, consisting of eleven members, guides RVC management.
Currently, RVC has more than 2,600 active members and up to 240 teams participating in evening recreational leagues from Sunday through Friday. RVC also supports 40 USAV and recreational juniors teams annually. The club hosts many adult and juniors tournaments. In addition, RVC sponsors outdoor tournaments, sand leagues, skills clinics, private lessons, referee training, and other special events related to volleyball…the sport for a lifetime.
Our concession stand offers soft drinks, sandwiches, pizza, hot dogs, and beer/wine – all at competitive prices!
Our sports shop provides all your volleyball clothing and equipment needs. The Shop is located within our concession area and purchases may be made whenever the concession is open.
