“We really want to establish our country as a volleyball destination especially with the countless beautiful beaches we have,” BVR co-founder Charo Soriano said. “We’re hoping that bringing top notch international players will help in that cause and continue to promote out country.

BVR gained ground for this tournament through the recognition of the LVPI which sanctioned this event and made sure all the jurisdictions were followed in bringing foreign athletes into our country.

Miguel Luis Flores fell face first into sports writing in high sch9l and has never gotten up. He reluctantly stumbled into the volleyball beat when he started with Tiebreaker Times three years ago. Now, he has waded through everything volleyball - from its icky politics to the post-modern art that is Jia Morado's setting.
