Volleyball tourney at Oshakati on Saturday

The eagerly anticipated second edition of the Nedbank Volley 1st Tournament is set for Embandu Soccer Field at Oshakati on Saturday

The one-day tournament is an initiative of the Connect People to People in collaboration with the Far North Volleyball Association, which aims to bring the community closer to the sport, especially in corporate, ministries, businesses and other agencies in the northern regions.

It is also a platform for volleyball enthusiasts to showcase their skills and passion for the game.

In addition to the volleyball games, the organisers have also incorporated a 1,5km, 3km and 5km fun walk for variety on the day.

Last year, over 20 volleyball teams battled it out at the Valombola Vocational Training Centre grounds at Ongwediva to be crowned champions in the Nedbank Volley 1st Tournament. The Namibian Correctional Service Volleyball Club scooped top honours as they came out on top, followed by Team Uzo-Tech in second place and Team Ongwediva MediPark in third.

This year’s tournament promises to be even more captivating, as the games will consist of two main categories – six-a-side and two-a-side. The winning team in the six-a-side category will walk away with N$6 000, while the two-a-side winners will walk away with N$1 500.

“This is an excellent opportunity for volleyball players to showcase their talent and form lasting connections within the volleyball community,” said Namibian Volleyball Federation spokesperson Hillary ‘Dux’ Imbuwa.

Nedbank Namibia’s spokesperson Selma Kaulinge said the the initiative empowers the community and promotes social cohesion.

“After the success of the first tournament, there had to be a sequel to ensure we continue to make the most impact and contribute to the growth of the sport in the region,” Kaulinge said.

“We wish all the teams luck for Saturday and ask all players and agencies to continue contributing to the development of volleyball so that it can become a leading sporting code in the country,” she stated.

The Nedbank Volley 1st Tournament is co-sponsored by Far North Volleyball Association, Windhoek Draught, Omulunga Radio and Coca-Cola.

Registration for the tournament is open until tomorrow.
