It may be rainy season but nothing can stop the 32 beach volleyball teams competing for the national title and the chance to represent the country in the Beach Volleyball Republic (BVR) On Tour National Championship this July 28 to 30 at the Anguib Beach in Sta. Ana, Cagayan.

 

After seven exciting BVR legs in different parts of the nation, 16 teams each in the men’s and women’s divisions will be slugging it out in the event, which has been sanctioned by the Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. (LVPI) as a qualifier for aspiring national bets to the Southeast Asian Beach Volleyball Games in Singapore.

 

The Top 3 in each division will be included in the national training pool, from which the LVPI will select the country’s official representatives to the international competition.

 

BVR founders Bea Tan and Charo Soriano made the announcement with BVR tournament director Tony Boy Liao in a presscon held ‪last Tuesday (July 18) at the Delimondo Café in Makati with Jimmy Alvaro and Kristen Enrile of BVR presenter Delimondo, and Jimmy Escaño of venue host Cagayan Adventures and Leisure.

 

Partial list of the participating teams include FEU, Dipolog, Coast Guard, NU, Bacolod, Iloilo, Cebu, RTU, La Salle Bacolod, Ateneo, Navy, and Coast Guard in the Men’s division; and RTU, Ateneo, Iloilo, Cebu, Bacolod, Tagum, PNP, and Perlas in the Women’s division.

 

With the dream of making the Philippines the Beach Volleyball Hub in Aisa, BVR has been organizing beach volleyball tournaments that do not only feature the best beach volleyball players in the country but promotes the beauty of our country. It also conducts “sandroots” activities to inspire and train young Filipino athletes to love and excel in the sport of beach volleyball.

 

Aside from the chance to represent the flag, the teams will also be fighting for the grand prize of Php 50,000, with the runner up receiving Php 30,000 and the third placer getting Php 15,000.

NATIONAL TITLE NG “BVR ON TOUR,” PAGLALABANAN

 

Hindi papipigil sa tag-ulan ang 32 koponang makikilahok sa Beach Volleyball Republic (BVR) On Tour National Championship sa darating na Hulyo 28 hanggang 30 sa Anguib Beach in Sta. Ana, Cagayan, kung saan paglalabanan ang pambansang titulo ng BVR ngayong taon at ang pagkakataong sumabak sa 2017 Southeast Asian (SEA) Games.

 

Matapos ang pitong BVR event na ginanap sa iba’t ibang parte ng bansa, tig-16 grupo sa men’s at women’s divisions ang magtutunggalian sa BVR National Championship, na napiling “qualifier” ng Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. (LVPI) sa kanilang binubuong national training pool para sa beach volleyball.

 

Papasok ang mga mananalo sa BVR National Championship sa pool na ito, kung saan pipili ang LVPI ng lalaban sa Southeast Asian Beach Volleyball Games sa Singapore sa Setyembre.

 

Ibinalita ito ng BVR founders  na sina Bea Tan at Charo Soriano kasama si BVR tournament director Tony Boy Liao sa isang presscon noong Martes (Hulyo 18) sa Delimondo Café sa Makati na dinaluhan din nina Jimmy Alvaro at Kristen Enrile ng Delimondo at Jimmy Escaño mula sa Cagayan Adventures and Leisure.

 

Ilan sa mga kasali sa torneyo ay ang FEU, Dipolog, Coast Guard, NU, Bacolod, Iloilo, Cebu, RTU, La Salle Bacolod, Ateneo, Navy, at Coast Guard sa Men’s division, at RTU, Ateneo, Iloilo, Cebu, Bacolod, Tagum, PNP, at Perlas sa Women’s division.

Pangarap ng BVR na maging sentro ng beach volleyball sa Asya ang Pilipinas kung kayat hindi lang nito tinatampok ang pinakamahusay na beach volleyball players sa bansa kundi pati ang pinakamagandang mga beach sa Pilipinas. Nagsasagawa rin ito ng “sandroots” program kung saan iniengganyo at tinuturuan nito ang mga bata sa iba’t ibang lugar upang mapamahal sa at gumaling sa beach volleyball.

 

Bukod sa pagkakataong lumaban para sa bansa, tatanggap din ang kampeon sa Men’s at Women’s division ng Php 50,000. Samantala, tatanggap din ang runner up ng Php 30,000 at ang third placer ng Php 15,000.
