About NSVV Heyendaal

NSVV Heyendaal is a volleyball association for students founded in 1967. Heyendaal members are students that come from all kinds of studies at Radboud University as well as the Hogeschool Arnhem Nijmegen (HAN).

Today, NSVV Heyendaal consists of thirteen women’s teams and five men’s teams.
The teams are classified as follows. Ladies 1 is active in the third division, Ladies 2 and 3 in the promotion class, Ladies 4 is active in the first class, Ladies 5 up to 8 in the second class, Ladies 9 up to 12 are playing in the third class, and Ladies 13 is active in the fourth class.

The Gents 1 team is active in the second division. Gents 2 in the promotion class. Gents 3 and 4 are playing in the first class, and the Gents 5 team is playing in the third class.

All teams practice on Mondays at the Radboud Sport Centre (RSC) or at the Jan Massink Hal (JMH). Additionally, Gents 1, Gents 2, Ladies 1, Ladies 2 and Ladies 3 also practice on Wednesdays at the RSC. The home matches of Gents 1 and 2, and Ladies 1, 2, 3 and 10 are on Saturdays at the RSC. The remaining teams play their home matches on Thursday evenings at the RSC.

NSVV Heyendaal is not only about playing volleyball. There are several fun activities organised throughout the year. For example, every year our volleyball players can enjoy each other’s culinary skills during Diner Rouler. You can also write articles in the Heybul; our club magazine that is released four times a year. Moreover, two times a year we organise an internal volleyball tournament in addition to the many, many other activities!

Also, NSVV Heyendaal hosts three events that are available for members as well as non-members. In the beginning of the academic year, we kick off the season with an open tournament (‘Openingstoernooi’). The ‘Friends of Heyendaal’ grass tournament (VVH Gras) usually takes place around the end of May and the ‘Friends of Heyendaal’ beach tournament (VVH beach) takes place around the start of July. If you would like to join these tournaments, check our Agenda for more information.

All of these activities can only take place thanks to the effort and enthusiasm of our members. Heyendaal’s committees work with much eagerness and fun every year to make sure each and every activity is a success!
