Who We Are
Serving up volleyball for 37 years
RVC is a private non-profit 501(c)3 organization founded in 1981 to meet the demand for recreational volleyball in the Central Virginia area. More than 1800 adult members play in leagues that run throughout the year and more than 600 junior players ages 7-18 participate in our junior programs. Between our two sites (RVC Byrdhill and RVC Stonebridge), we have 20 courts and our facilities include a cafe, weights room, game room, and showers.
The Richmond Volleyball Club is dedicated to providing a lifetime of opportunity through the sport of volleyball by promoting interest in the sport, teaching and developing skills and techniques, and fostering teamwork, sportsmanship, and an appreciation for health and wellness.
13 full-time and numerous part-time employees operate the club. A volunteer Board of Directors, consisting of 9-11 members, guides RVC management.
Currently, RVC has more than 2,900 active members and up to 240 teams participating in evening recreational leagues from Sunday through Friday. RVC also supports 40 USAV Junior Travel Teams and around 150 junior recreational teams annually. Along with hosting many adult and junior tournaments, RVC also sponsors sand leagues, skills clinics, private lessons, referee training, and other special events related to volleyball.
The Richmond Volleyball Club, a private, non- profit 501c(3) organization, was founded in 1981 when two area leagues, TRAVL and Fan League, merged and opened what was our first location (RVC East) at 3300 West Marshall Street in Richmond, Virginia. The nightly leagues consisted of men’s, women’s and co-ed teams at various levels and was open only to adults.
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.
In March 2018, RVC expanded it’s operations with a 50, 000 sq. ft. facility which houses 8 courts, in partnership with Chesterfield Parks & Recreation. Located at the Stonebridge Shopping Center, 200 Karl Linn Drive in Chesterfield County, (RVC Stonebridge) it’s conveniently surrounded by shops and restaurants as well as easy access to the interstate. The following May 2018, RVC Westmoreland was closed down.
