Volleyball facilities inadequate- Official

Published:

The official decried the poor state of the volleyball courts.

Nigerian Volleyball is not progressing because the facilities in the various sporting centres across the country are in poor state and not sufficient.

This was disclosed by the Technical Director of the Nigeria Volleyball National team, Tony Ogunma.

Mr. Ogunma, on Tuesday in Abuja, decried the state of the available volleyball courts in the country.

‘We do not have a good and world class volleyball court in the country,” he said. “The absence of volleyball courts is affecting the preparation of the team.”

He said the single volleyball court at the indoor sports hall of the Abuja National Stadium is not sufficient to prepare the team for success.

The National Volleyball Team, like most other sports, had a poor performance at the London 2012 Olympics.

The team is currently preparing for the African Championship that will take place early next year.
