Honesty, Integrity, Sportsmanship, Respect
Welcome to the website of the official NGB for the fast-growing sport of VX in England!
VX originated in Yorkshire in 2006 and in the short time since then has gained a foot-hold in 25 countries with 15 official National Governing Bodies.
With its core values of Honesty, Integrity, Sportsmanship and Respect VX is a sport that is very family focussed. It can be played recreationally or competitively and for those who want to, there is a pathway right through to international competition
VX is played in clubs, schools, colleges, universities, leisure centres, the armed forces, prisons and youth groups.
It is also a popular attraction at community events, too
September 20th 2016: Position Statement from Global VX
We have been asked about the unaffiliated NGBs namely England VX and Scotland VX that have purportedly been set up in Scotland and England.
These bodies have been set up by a small disaffected break-away faction of our former members, who are deliberately seeking to undermine and disrupt the existing VX structure.
For the avoidance of doubt, they do NOT speak for the established and recognised relevant VX bodies, namely VX England, VX Scotland, Global VX or any other authorised and affiliated body.
They are evidently offering training and qualifications, but that training and those qualifications are not recognised or authorised by the official VX governing bodies.
We invite you to treat any criticisms or claims that you may receive from the representatives of these breakaway groups with extreme caution and we ask that any approaches that you may receive from them are reported immediately to us, as we are collating details of their activities for the purposes of taking legal action to curtail their interference.
Should you have any genuine queries or concerns then please contact Global VX (www.globalvx.org) or write or speak to Paul Hildreth (email@example.com, 07790 351534)
