London Spikers k vc
London Spikers started as "Spiker Studs" back in 1995 as a cute name to rhyme with our sisters in their volleyball club Dynamo Dykes. The club began life as a casual drop in play session and has grown into a much liked fixture of London's gay lifestyle.
London Spikers has a long traditional history of being a friendly diverse place for men from around the world. It is probably one of the most diverse group of sporting gay men in the country and its members are proud of the friendships and team work that this diversity inspires.
The club has players who range from beginners to intermediate and advanced level. We currently have teams registered in London Volleyball Association's Division 1 and Division 2.
Fireball is an upper intermediate team in the Club. It has been knocking at the door for promotion from London League Division 2 to Division 1 for a number of years.
Currently it has a good run of victories in the season. We are hoping that the boys would fight its hearts out to reach the top of the league.View...
London Spikers Knights Volleyball Club attends London Pride 2016
LSKVC is proud to announce our participation to the 2016 London Pride edition, which will take place on 25th June. The annual march gathers more than 1 million and is supposed to be the 3rd biggest event organised in the UK capital.
This year, the biggest gay men volleyball club of London will be represented by more than 20 enthusiastic players, who will be showing off our new uniforms while showing energetic and athletic passing and digging to the public.
To make LSKVC’s appearance standing out, our players will be parading with an outrageously colourful and vibrant volleyball net, specially customised for the occasion.
LSKVC’s participation is driven by a sincere and strong desire to show our solidarity to the London LGBT sport community, which encourages gay men and women to participate to sport activities and build a social life outside the traditional London gay scene.
LSKVC President, Sidney Lima said:
“20 years ago, sporting environments were very different for gay men. It was extremely challenging and at times inaccessible due to the harassment, bullying and violence which could be directed towards LGBT+ individuals.
London Spikers Knights Volleyball Club was created to provide the opportunity for gay men to create friendships for life, to share common experiences and to be active through practicing volleyball with no fear.
Marching in London’s Gay Pride Parade allows us to express the importance for members of our community to have a safe place to practice activities without the threat of homophobia. It is our collective duty to show the world the importance of equality.”
