CAVB Zone VI hosted the Technical Meeting for the penultimate 7th leg of its Beach Tour on Thursday, 19 January at Durban’s Maharani Hotel. The meeting was well attended by the 17 men’s teams and 14 women’s teams from Mozambique, Botswana, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Namibia and South Africa. In his address to the gathering, VSA President Mr.Anthony Mokoena was lavish in his praise for KZN Volleyball for graciously offering to host the Beach Tour after Gauteng Volleyball Union informed the National Federation of its difficulties in delivering the event.
In addition, the VSA President expressed his gratitude to all the sponsors which included Aqua Darshan and the Southern Suns Hotel Group. The hotel group made available their conference facility free of charge for the technical Meeting and provided a smorgasbord of culinary delights for all the guests. After the draws were done by the Zone’s President, Mr.Khalid Cassam from Mozambique, there was an air of quiet optimism from the ‘’heavy weights’’ of the competition from Mozambique, Botswana and Zimbabwe as they weighed up their options against the rest of the ‘pack’ Seemingly their only threat on their way to the podium was the newly formed South African pairing of Leo Williams and Danilo von Ludwiger who were making their debut as a pairing at this level of competition. Leo Williams who plays professionally on the European Beach Volleyball Circuit responded as follows: ‘’Only time will tell.’’
