Nabingo, Uganda, August 6, 2014- A total of 106 teams involving boys and girls competed in the 2014 Volley All Festival at Trinity College Nabingo on Friday July 25, 2014. The event, which involved children of different age groups, had 22 teams competing in the U-10, 33 in the U-12 and 51 in the U-15 categories.

“As a Federation, we are impressed by the turn up and the level of skills displayed today,” remarked Uganda Volleyball Federation Technical Director Mr Tonny Lakony. The teams were organised in pools and played at least three matches each.

"This Festival is self-contained technically; we only provide guidance in a few areas and this can be done in any part of the country," noted Levian Ashaba, Tournament Director and Head of the Uganda Volleyball Federation Mass Volleyball Commission. "Besides playing, the participants also officiated their own games," he added.

Athletes and teachers received goodies from the events sponsors Movit Limited and Coca Cola. “As a part of our corporate social responsibility programme, we always give back to the community which we believe in,” said Amos Mugarura, Movit’s Public Relations Officer.

Movit also supported the second edition of the Margret Cox Memorial tournament held at Gayaza High School. “We are therefore looking forward to strengthening this relationship with the volleyball community,” Amos added.

The event is expected to be biannual and Trinity College Nabingo will be a festival centre for the region as the Mass Volleyball Commission continues to identify more centres especially up-country.
