BaliPure to face NU, UST, Adamson, Army in tune-ups

BaliPure will close the final stretch of their preparations for the 2021 Premier Volleyball League Open Conference with a series of tune-ups against National University, University of Santo Tomas, Adamson University, and either Black Mamba-Army or the Philippine Under-19 Women’s National Volleyball Team.

On Wednesday, the rejigged Purest Water Defenders team took on the Lady Bulldogs in NU-Manila, losing in five sets.

The Purest Water Defenders will face the Golden Tigresses on Friday and then square off against the Lady Falcons on Sunday.

Team manager Gil Cortez assured that the team is still following strict health and safety protocols.

“Despite NCR being placed under Alert Level I, we still follow strict protocols, including daily antigen tests prior to each tuneup or training session,” he said. “We can never be too safe especially with the opening happening in just a few days.”

To close out their series, BaliPure will either face Black Mamba-Army or the Philippine Under-19 Women’s National Volleyball Team on the 15th.

“We are hoping that the tune-ups help us get into game form before the season begins,” added Cortez.

Prior to closing their bubble training, BaliPure treated its players to a day-off at Y Farm in Bacolor, Pampanga.2022-PVL-Open-Conference-BaliPure-Y-Farm BaliPure to face NU, UST, Adamson, Army in tune-ups News NU PVL UST Volleyball  - philippine sports news
