”We are starting from young ones for young ones to start playing Volleyball, since that the kids knows soccer, what we want we want kids to start playing and know what is good playing Volleyball and to teach them how to play Volleyball in a different tactics and skills” Nailonga said.
It is against that background that Nailonga is calling on all volleyball lovers to come in numbers for their first Beach tournament of the year on the 23rd of this month at DTS in Olympia, Windhoek.
