where we came from and what we stand for
EVOLUTION OF NETZO
First named ‘The Volleydots’ back in the days, Netzo is a volleyball club which was established in the 1980s. For over 30 years Netzo is a symbol of openness, inclusiveness and diversity in Amsterdam. The club evolved over the years and currently has more than 100 active members. Our members originate from 25+ different nationalities, male, female, transgender, young, old and from every sexual orientation.The name “Net Zo” literally expresses what we stand for as an association, namely that everyone is equal and welcome.
In 2003 a special book has been published regarding the 15th birthday of Netzo. Read it to learn more about the history of Netzo!
Teams from Netzo actively participate in regional and international competitions. We are broadly represented at NeVoBo in the Amsterdam region. Here, we compete with 8 teams of which 1 women’s team and 7 men’s teams. That actually makes us the biggest volleybal club at NeVoBo region Amsterdam!
Netzo teams also take part in the yearly BeNeLux ‘homocompetition’. Here our teams play at different levels to compete against other teams.
We train on Wednesday and Friday evening. Our trainings are given by experienced trainers, aimed at improving your volleyball game. Netzo offers different levels of training groups, depending on your skill level. Have you played for many years or just starting to learn? No worries, we have training groups for every level.
Beside the training under the eye of an experience trainer, Netzo offers recreative volleyball at Sunday afternoon. This is the excellent moment to play volleyball and improve your game!
SINTERKLAAS TOURNAMENTBEACH VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT
Yearly we organise our own Sinterklaas Tournament. This populair tournament welcomes players from all over Europe who compete on the volleyball court. Every year we attract over 300 international players to the Sinterklaas Tournament. The weekend is jam-packed with volleyball, fun, drinks, party and friendship. For the tournament weekend Netzo offers hosted housing for teams from abroad looking for a place to stay.
Whenever the indoor volleyball seasons comes to an end, we relocate to the outside. Under the warmth of the sun we play beach volleyball twice a week. In the mids of the summer, Netzo organizes a beach volleyball tournament!
