CEV and Malta Volleyball Association strengthen cooperation to grow the game

Belgrade, Serbia, January 31, 2020. On Friday, CEV President Aleksandar Boričić had the pleasure of holding cordial talks with the newly elected President of the Malta Volleyball Association (MVA), Mr Edward Gatt and the MVA Vice-President, Mr Branko Vlahović, at the CEV President Office in Belgrade.

It was a truly precious opportunity to strengthen the cooperation with the highest authorities from the Mediterranean archipelago, in particular due to the problems Malta has experienced for a while, especially in terms of lack of Volleyball activities. With the help of their new leadership, the Malta Volleyball Association have drafted ambitious plans to initiate a number of projects and activities, especially the CEV School Project, with a focus on the further development of Volleyball in schools.

The MVA wish to work closely with younger coaches and physical education teachers, and the development of Beach Volleyball stands out as the most important part of their planned activities. This should also involve gradual involvement and participation in international events, while the organisation of some Beach Volleyball tournaments and age-group events is well under consideration too.

President Gatt expressed his gratitude for the meeting hosted by the CEV President, for the time spent in good and fruitful talks and said he very much looks forward to strengthening the cooperation with the CEV even further in the near future.

CEV and the Malta Volleyball Association wish to work together not only on the promotion of international cooperation, but also to make sure that the support provided by government, regional and local authorities can help grow Volleyball in Malta at a much faster pace than it has happened this far.

Volleyball Training Camp in Malta for Dutch Team

Volleyball club Volley2B, which is based in Rotterdam and has teams playing in various divisions within the Dutch National Leagues, has held its annual training camp for its male and female teams in Malta from Friday 6th September to Monday 9th September.

As part of its training programme, Volley2B’s female teams played friendly matches against two local clubs, Swieqi Phoenix Volleyball Club and Fleur-de-Lys Volleyball Club. Both games were entertaining with the local teams winning both encounters with close scores.

Speaking on behalf of Volley2B, Bart Visser expressed his gratitude to the Malta Volleyball Association for its assistance and assured that all members of the visiting teams had a very positive experience. The Club intended to organise other training camps in Malta in the coming years. Visser explained how this weekend proved to be beneficial for the teams, not only from a technical point of view but also in terms of the Club’s team building endeavours. During their short stay the contingent also found time to visit the Maltese Islands.

The Malta Volleyball Association acknowledges the importance of such visits and collaborations, which it hopes to bolster over the coming years.
