Greece holds a 'Volley All Festival' to remember

A total of 250 teams played volleyball for over two hours at the site of the first Olympic Games of the modern era in 1896.

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.
