The Sport Promotion Unit in collaboration with the Malta Volleyball Association organised another two Volleyball tournaments. This time it was the turn for Form 3&4 boys and girls on Monday 7th March and Wednesday 9th March respectively.
In the first tournament 75 boys from Stella Maris College, SMC Verdala Sec, STC St Venera Sec, STMC Hamrun Sec, MRC Naxxar Sec and SCC Pembroke Sec participated. Following this tournament it was the girls’ turn two days later. 50 girls from MRC Mosta Sec, SCC Pembroke Sec, SIC Handaq Sec and St Catherine School took part.
In both tournaments the teams played in 3 v 3 games in a first phase round robin divided in groups and then in a knockout phase to determine the winner of the tournaments. 8 courts were put up to accommodate the 24 boys’ teams while the 14 girls’ teams played on 6 courts.
The two tournaments were won by STC St Venera Team 2 after beating Stella Maris Team 4 in the final boys’ game and by SCC Pembroke Team 2 after beating St Catherine Team 1 for the girls respectively.
Both tournaments saw the presence of Mr Jes Saliba, MVA President, Mr Leonard Zammit Munro, MVA Executive Council Member together with the newly appointed MVA Technical Director Mr Edvaldo Carvalho da Silva.
Thanks goes also to all School Teachers who prepared their students for these tournaments.
These two tournaments will be followed by the last festival for this scholastic year which will be for Form 1 & 2 boys and girls on Wednesday 27th April 2016.
