The video can be viewed here.
The Volley All festival in Nepal’s capital was held August 25, 2012. FIVB-supplied balls and nets on makeshift courts gave the children all they needed to start playing, and the event attracted plenty of interest. The young attendees received instruction in basic volleyball skills before being divided into teams to play matches.
Khatmandu has about one million inhabitants, and the prospects for future development there are promising. The FIVB is currently supporting a project to develop a league of competitive youth teams in Nepal and, although the Nepalese national federation has limited means to promote Volleyball within the country, a focus on grass-roots development through initiatives like these will allow a new generation of young people in Nepal to grow up with exposure to the game and a desire to participate.
Volley All festivals are designed to help national federations get the sport up and running in category I and II federations, through grass-roots-level involvement, and attract young people to the game at an early stage. More information is available on the FIVB’s designated Volley All website.
