Creamline will once again represent the Philippines, this time in the 2022 ASEAN Grand Prix in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.
The first of two rounds will be on September 9 to 11 with four participating teams in Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
“Yes ‘yun ‘yung sabi ng management sa amin maglalaro kami sa ASEAN Gran Prix. We have two days break then balik na kami sa ensayo.
“Hopefully madala namin ‘yung exposure dito going to Thailand,” added Meneses, whose squad won three of its seven matches.
The Cool Smashers will now wait if team skipper Alyssa Valdez can recover in time for the regional meet.
“Hindi ko pa masagot pero hopefully makabalik siya para syempre, iba naman talaga ‘yung ambag ni Alyssa sa team pero syempre ‘yung health niya muna ang concern namin,” said Meneses on Valdez’s availability.
The ASEAN Grand Prix will be Creamline’s third tournament in a month after the team reigned supreme in the PVL Invitational Conference last August 14.
And for the sacrifice that the players do for the country, Meneses is proud of his squad.
“‘Yung team familiarity at team chemistry napakahalaga dito sa tournament na ito. Thank you sa mga players talaga na never sumuko dito.”
