2021 AVC Women's Championship

AVC postpones Asian Women’s Championship to May 2022

The Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC) has notified the Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB) that it is postponing the 2021 Asian Women’s Volleyball Championship. 

Originally slated to take place from August 29 to September 5 in Pampanga, it then moved to October 24 to 31.

However, China, Indonesia, and Japan had to withdraw with the latter two nations citing health and safety concerns.

The AVC also barred India and Nepal from participating due to the new COVID-19 surge in the region.

Later on, Korea also withdrew, citing a lack of training time for the tournament.

With this, the AVC has decided that China and Japan will be the two nations that will participate in the 2022 FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship. The tournament takes place in the Netherlands and Poland.

The memo signed by AVC secretary-general Kiattipong Radchatagriengkai also proposed to move the Asian tournament to May 15-22, 2022. This way, the participating teams “will obtain the FIVB world ranking points like other confederations.”

The Philippine Women’s National Volleyball team also broke camp a few days ago. It will reconvene in preparation for the Asian Women’s Club Championship where they will be representing Rebisco. The tournament is still scheduled to take place this October in Bangkok, Thailand.

The pool of head coach Odjie Mamon consists of PVL players Ria Meneses, Mylene Paat, MJ Phillips, Rhea Dimaculangan, Dindin Santiago-Manabat, Dell Palomata, Aby Maraño, Majoy Baron, Dawn Macandili, Kim Dy, and Tin Tiamzon.

Completing the squad are free agent Iris Tolenada and young guns Eya Laure, Faith Nisperos, Ivy Lacsina, Mhicaela Belen, Jennifer Nierva, Kamille Cal, Alyssa Solomon, Imee Hernandez, and Bernadett Pepito.
