THE Zimbabwe Volleyball Association (ZVA) will hold their annual general meeting (AGM) on January 31 with the item top of the agenda being the country’s participation at international tournaments.


ZVA secretary-general Ringisai Mapondera said the AGM would be held in Harare and their main focus would be the 2015 calendar and the budget for the upcoming events.

Zimbabwe has already qualified for the Continental Cup which will be held next month and will be taking part in the All-Africa Games qualifiers in April.

“We will have our AGM on January 31 where we will discuss, among other things, Zimbabwe’s qualification for the Beach Volleyball Continental Cup,” he said.

“We have not been advised of the dates and venue, but we know that it will be sometime next month.”

Mapondera said they were hoping to send a team for the All-Africa Games Qualifiers in April although they had not been advised of the venue.

“It is difficult for the confederation (African Volleyball Confederation) to release the venues early because most countries have reservations, especially when travelling to countries that were affected by Ebola,” he said.

“At the moment we do not have a six-a-side team that will take part in the All-Africa qualifiers.”

The beach volleyball team that qualified for the Continental Cup was made up of two teams that had Nyashadzake Takawira, Douglas Choto, Trevor Sibanda and Kudzai Sibangani.
