Koforidua (E/R), March 7, GNA – The second edition of the Eastern Regional Volleyball Association Gala has been slated for the 27th to 29th April 2018, at the Koforidua Jacksons Park.
The two-day competition, which is being organized by the association is aimed at creating awareness for the upcoming Eastern Regional Volleyball league, which would kick off later in the year.
The competition, also seeks to unearth talents to form the Eastern Regional team for the up-coming sports festival to be hosted by Cape Coast this year.
The gala is expected to feature crack teams like Unity Volleyball Club of Koforidua, the dreaded Court Winners of Donkorkrom, Okere United Way of Adukrom, Viber Hands of Akwatia, Hydro Spikers of Akosombo and other tough teams across the region.
Speaking to the GNA Sports in an interview at Koforidua, Miss Monica Arko Adjei, Regional Volleyball Coach and Secretary of the Association, called for support from individuals and corporate organizations in the region to make the competition a success.
She said the inability to organise enough competitions in the region to harness talents was really crippling the sports.
This she believed if, there were committed people who were willing to adopt and invest in volleyball and other lesser known sports, it was going to change the trend and more talents can be harnessed for the national teams.
