Mgarr Volleyball Club celebrate their first year in style

Tuesday, March 8, 2011, 5:01

Just a year ago what was a dream to a couple of friends who used to meet up to play some social volleyball, has now became a reality based on solid grounds, with Mgarr Volleyball Club, a new club, now celebrating its first year of existence.

From that moment on, the club committee worked hard to make sure that this venture was going to be a reality for a long time. In fact, the team started with six players, and has now increased to a total of seventeen senior players. The youth section is being formed at the moment and already has a good number of young athletes that are attending training sessions.

During the Maratona Sports organised at Oratorju ‘Qalb bla Tebgha ta’Marija’ in Mgarr to collect funds for Id-Dar tal-Providenza, the club celebrated its first anniversary by helping out to collect more money. An outdoor volleyball tournament was organised and a good sum of money was collected from those participating. The aim of the club is not to just compete in the national league but also to help out in the Mgarr locality.

Although Mgarr Volley is still seeking its first ever win in the national league, it has been a tough opponent to all teams and with the hard work that the committee and everyone is doing, this volleyball club will definitely remain here for a long time to come.

Mgarr Volleyball Club would like to thank the Mgarr Local Council and its sponsors: Ballut Blocks, Framegrip Ltd and Northern Country for their help and support.

    just saw your article. the male league is very tough for any new teams where most of the players have little volleyball experience. Saw you play a couple of times and i am pleased to see that mgarr are on the right track to gaining a positive result in the near future. hopefully one or two new teams will enter next season. well done and keep it up guys. steve
