03 June 2013 - Phoenix Sports Club (Phoenix S.C.), one of Malta’s largest sports clubs, is currently undertaking a drive to get more girls interested in the Olympic sport of volleyball and to encourage them to join its nursery. Apart from teaching children the fundamental skills of volleyball, the Phoenix S.C. volleyball nursery provides girls between the age of 9 and 16 with the opportunity to improve their mental and physical fitness as well as develop communication and leadership skills.

“Our mission is to teach young people those skills which will help them become competitive volleyball players with a solid foundation for success in volleyball and in life” says Phoenix S.C. President Orlando Bonnici.

Over the past two years, the Club, which also has teams participating in national handball, basketball and swimming competitions, has been investing heavily in its volleyball teams, including its nursery. This drive has led to Phoenix Melita Unipol winning the volleyball Second Division title in its first year in existence, while the Phoenix U-14s and U-16s were league runners-up in their respective categories.

Those interested in trying out volleyball in a fun environment can contact Orlando Bonnici on 7944 9359 or send an email to
