Athens, Greece, 17 June 2013 – The Hellenic Volleyball Federation, in conjunction with the Hellenic Olympic Committee, recently organised a mini-volleyball festival for more than a thousand players.The event, part of the FIVB’s ‘Volley All Festival’, was a great success with players coming from all over the country. One team travelled two thousand miles from the town of Soufli in the province of Evros to get to the festival.
Hundreds of fans were in attendance as were players from the Women's
National Team of Greece, who took the time to mingle with the young players. When the final whistle blew, the players formed the word 'Volley' on the field.
The ‘Volley All Festival’ is a mass event with mass
participation. It was created to give people around the world a fun, enjoyable
and competitive environment in which to play volleyball and beach volleyball. The
event gives national federations the opportunity to develop the sport locally
and to work on an event which combines the promotion of sports, youth interest,
and media at the local and international level.
