Premier Volleyball League teams are a step closer to returning to training.
PVL officials, headed by president Ricky Palou, together with the Games and Amusements Board led by chairman Baham Mitra, went around three training venues in San Juan and Mandaluyong to inspect whether they are on par with the guidelines set by the joint administrative order.
“Chairman Baham was there to come see the venue. He has been very supportive. In fact, he has instructed his team to give full support to the teams and the league,” expressed Palou.
Ronac Gym in Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong is the proposed venue for Creamline, Choco Mucho, and Perlas. Peak Form, on the other hand, is looking at Greenhills West Gym in San Juan.
Petro Gazz, of course, will be staying in its home base Filoil Flying V Centre.
With GAB clearing all three venues, all the teams must seek permission from the local government units before practicing. Once they get that, GAB will verify it so that teams can begin to train for the PVL Open Conference season, set to begin in the second quarter of the year.
Petro Gazz also offered the Filoil Flying V Centre to accommodate the other teams looking for a place to practice.
“If the teams are looking for a venue, Filoil said to just call them and they’ll try to accommodate them,” said Palou.
The PVL brass is set to meet with officials of Cignal, PLDT, and Bali Pure on Thursday.
