  Spanish   French

Two fantastic venues 250kms apart will play hosts to the women volleyball stars of tomorrow when Poland hosts the Girls' U18 World Championship in August.

Wloclawek, a bustling city in central Poland about 140 km northwest of Warsaw, will play host with a state of the art stadium and a passionate fan base of over 100,000 locals to boot.

Boasting the country's largest hydroelectric power station and reservoir on the Wisla, Wloclawek is the chief city and industrial centre of the fertile Kujawy region. But it is also steeped in history with a Gothic cathedral, the Saint John's Church, and a Baroque reformative church, all dating from between the 14th and 17th centuries.

Pila, meanwhile, situated 250km northwest of Wloclawek, is equally inspiring with a magnificent modern stadium in wonderful surroundings, fully supported by volleyball aficionados across Poland.

Players from right around the world will have the best possible stage to display their wonderful skills and enthusiasm for this magnificent sport in one of the most accommodating venues around the world.
