Tembusu Volleyball

Tembusu Volleyball is a community of players from all skill levels who simply want to enjoy the game of volleyball in a welcoming and cordial environment. We impart volleyball skills to new players, allowing them to master the art of passing the ball (Service, Digging, Setting and Spiking!) over each training through several stress-free drills organised by our players! We also teach players how to rotate around the court, as well as some general knowledge about the game. In the second half of every session, we also enjoy volleyball matches to hone our new skills! Within UTown, we have an established network including the other residential colleges, which we frequently engage with, in trainings and friendlies! Whether you’re a veteran player or someone who’s never touched a volleyball before, Tembusu Volleyball is truly for anybody who wishes to enjoy a fantastic, engaging sport with warm, friendly people!

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
