Maputo, Mozambique, October 30, 2012 - The Mozambique Volleyball Federation organised a Cool Beach Volley Vhampionship to help celebrate the 125th anniversary of Maputo, the capital of Mozambique.

The Mozambique Volleyball Federation will also be opening its doors on October 31, as its ongoing FIVB VCP Beach Volleyball Course instructed by Yaniv Noyman continues until November 6.
