THE Zimbabwe Beach Volleyball commission is set to host the second series of beach volleyball on February 28 and March 1 at Highfield Community Centre in Harare.
Zimbabwe Volleyball Association (ZVA) resolved to hold more beach volleyball series throughout the year to give players opportunities to play the sport during the annual general meeting that was held in Harare last month.
Ten provinces are expected to take part mainly the senior team pairs for women and men.
Beach Volleyball Commission vice-chairperson Vengai Nyawule said the aim of the series was to scout players for the national team .
“We conduct these series to select a national team as well as to make the sport known by encouraging people to play beach volleyball,” Nyawule said.
ZVA secretary-general Ringisai Mapondera said the tournament was open to anyone.
“Points are awarded during the tournament and a national team will be formed from those teams which will have acquired mega points,” he said.
Meanwhile, the first series was held in Bulawayo last month and 10 teams took part.
Media Mafuta and Felistas Chakabveyo from the Zimbabwe National Army were the champions with 10 points while Viola Muchaona and Profit Mukonto from Zimpost came second with eight points in the women’s section.
Tsungiriro Shumba and Tsungai Taterera from the Harare Province finished third with five points.
In the men’s category, Rufaro Douglas Choto and Kudzai Nigel Sibangani won with 10 points while Kudzai Karongo and Shingirai Shama from Zimbabwe Republic Police came second with eight points.
Nyawule indicated that they were seeking sponsorship from corporate world and business communities for building beach volleyball courts.
