Kalei Mau is back in Manila with the rest of the Philippine Women’s National Volleyball Team pool.
And the 26-year-old Filipino-American said that she will stay in Manila for the next couple of months to “compete.”
“I’m with the national team still. We are headed back to the Philippines,” she said in her Instagram story post.
“Yes, I’m headed back to Manila, haven’t been there for two years so I’m really excited to be back.
“I’m just ready to keep competing until the end of the year,” she continued.
The only remaining domestic tournament left in the year for the country is the 2021 Philippine National Volleyball Federation Champions League. It is slated to take place next month.

PNVF President Tats Suzara bared on Power and Play that the 2019 Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Most Valuable Player has received an offer to play in the Turkish Women’s Volleyball League.
“Our Fil-Am Kalei Mau, she played in Puerto Rico and I heard she is also going to play again somewhere in Europe, in Turkey,” said Suzara as Mau is coming off a stint with Puerto Rican club Changos de Naranjito.

“She is now keen on getting the schedule of the national team.
“I have to give this calendar to them,” said Suzara as Mau, Bryan Bagunas, Jaja Santiago, and Marck Espejo are playing overseas. “After May 15, balik na dapat sila sa Pilipinas for the national team.”
