Paola Volleyball Club won the first edition of the International women’s Tournament “Conca d’Oro” which was held in Monreale in Sicily last week.
The event was organised at the Antonio Veneziano Sport complex by ASD Primula, of Monreale, a sports association that has been carrying out women’s and men’s volleyball activities for over 50 years.
Four teams participated in this tournament which were ASD Primula A, ASD Primula B, Volley Asiago and Paola Volleyball Club.
The Paola players, under the guidance of the coach, Mark Hili, had a great performance in this tournament as they won all three games.
In the first match, Paola Volleyball Club won against Primula B 3-0, followed by a win over Volley Asiago by the same scoreline.
In the final game the Paolites faced Primula A and the Maltese team won 3-0.
Paola and Primula A met again in the tournament final and the Maltese team again prevailed, this time 3-1.
After the match, Paola Volleyball captain Cynthia Duncan was presented with the winning trophy.
Asked to comment about the team’s participation in this tournament, club president Dr Kenneth Vella stated that this international tournament was a great learning experience for the Paola team.
“The event follows the successful training camp in Malta that was held a few days before this tournament and which was led by Italian agent Stefano Negrini with the participation of professional Italian coaches and players,” Dr Vella said.
“The training camp and the participation in Sicily confirm also the committee’s present strategy to strengthen not only its nursery but also to provide its senior team with international experience.
“This would not have been possible without the financial and logistical support of a number of companies and individuals like Executive Security, Dragonara Casino and Brasserie, Maypole and De Paola Pharmacy,” concluded Dr
Dr Vella said that the Paola team will certainly benefit from these experiences in their upcoming league matches. Paola Volleyball club has already been mathematically promoted to the Super League next season.
