Volleyball South Africa has concluded its 5th Leg of FIVB Homologated Beach Volleyball Tour. The 5th Leg Tour took place at Cape Town, Camps Bay on the 17 and 18 of April 2021. The Tourney which was the last of 5 Cape Town Tours attracted 16 teams on men’s category and 6 teams on women’s category.
The President of Western Cape Union, Mr. Loet Groenewalt alluded that he is very happy to see how the tournaments unfolded even after the COVID-19 break and without sponsors for the tournament. “I was overwhelmed to see SA stars based in Europe coming down to Cape Town and Zimbabwean teams participating in the tournaments,” Loet added. Likewise, the President of Volleyball South Africa, Mr. Anthony Mokoena, commended Western Cape Union for hosting such a magnificent FIVB Homologated Beach Volleyball Tours. Our sincerest gratitude goes to the players who compromised other activities but honoured our Beach Volleyball Tours and the tournaments wouldn’t be the same without players’ attendance, said Anthony Mokoena. In addition, Mokoena encourages all provinces and neighboring countries to be part of this history making tournaments.
