Bermuda  Hosts 2006 SWATCH-FIVB U-19 World Championships

 

The fifth SWATCH-FIVB World Championships for menís and womenís players under the age of 19 will be held September 5-10 in Bermuda.  Known as the Island of Bermuda, Bermuda is the second most remote island in the world - the nearest point of land being to the west, at Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, 650 miles (1046 km) away.  New York City is 750 miles (1215 km) to the northwest and London is 3,460 miles (5568 km) to the northeast.  Many people make the mistake of thinking Bermudaís somewhere in the Caribbean.  Itís not. Bermuda is actually 950 miles (1529 km) to the north of Nassau, Bahamas.  The 2006 SWATCH-FIVB World Championships Under 19 will be organised by the Bermuda Volleyball Association (BVA) with assistance from The Bermuda Department of Tourism.
