VX is a mixed sport - males and females compete on an equal footing. It's an inclusive sport - players of all abilities and many disabilities can compete. It helps drive participation, especially among the less sporty, but on the other hand, for the more advanced players there is a route right through to international representation.
At Scunthorpe VX Club we usually play the team version so that everybody gets to play and interact. VX is a non-contact team sport where points are scored by hitting anyone on the other team with one of the 5 low-impact tennis balls in play using a stick with scoops at either side which are used to launch the balls. There are no marked zones within the court and players are not out when hit, they just register the point by raising their hand. Protective eye-wear is available from the coaches free of charge for the session and we always use low-impact balls so that the game always stays fun!
Due to the sport being niche we do not expect any new-comers to have any prior knowledge of the sport and we welcome all abilities. VX is great for children who may not be acustomed to playing sport on a regular basis and/or just want to try something new.
VX is also a great way to get healthy. VX is a tiring sport and the best part is that most players don't even realise because they are having so much fun and engaging in the sport and their team. Come and have a go! First session is free!

Congratulations to Jamie who is the latest of our players to get onto the England programme. Jamie successfully attended England trials and impressed everyone, winning a coveted place in the Youth Squad. We are delighted that Jamie came back to the sport when he heard about the establishment of the new club and could take advantage of all the competitive and other opportunities offered by the official VX bodies.

Unfortunately we have to say thank you and good bye to one of our guest coaches. Mark Maspero has just been offered a full-time job in football and this unfortunately means a clash and he can no longer be one of our guest coaches. We are very grateful to Mark for helping us get off the ground and we wish him all the best in his new role
