Proudest Sporting Moment: Coming 4th at the Junior European Rowing Championships & becoming the libero of the Cambridge Volleyball Team
Hi, my name is Jiri but friends call me Jirka. I'm a third-year natural scientist from the Czech Republic and the captain of Trinity’s volleyball team. I have been playing with the Cambridge Blues for the last two seasons as a libero (the only player with different kit- feel free to look it up!). Besides that, I have two years of experience as a beach volleyball player – not to mention six years of rowing!
Volleyball is a beautiful sport. It involves a lot of skill, agility, team play and- above all- a lot of fun. Not many things in the world feel as good as diving for a ball or spiking it so hard that the other team's morale drops instantly to zero.
If you are even slightly interested in playing then our team is the right place for you. We support all levels of skill, ranging from complete newbies to aspirants to one of the university teams.
The aim is to have at least one training session per week, plus regular matches against other colleges in Lent term. We will most likely have joint sessions with the Queen's team to get proper 6v6 training going so there will also be an opportunity to meet people from a different college!
If you want to join the team or need more information, just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
See you on court!
