Wednesday, August 3, 2011, 7:03

For the past 2 weeks, Malta has been the base for the English & Volley Camp organised by Scuola di Pallavolo Anderlini of Modena, Italy. Almost 30 players coming from various parts of Italy as well as from Russia and Spain formed part of this delegation.

During their stay, besides the intensive training at the Cottonera Sports Complex, the participants have had the opportunity to to visit Mdina, Birgu by night and Valletta as well as enjoying fun afternoons at Rinella Bay, Golden Bay and Ghadira Bay. No doubt, however, that the highlight of their stay was the whole day trip to Gozo, where they visited the Azure Window, Calypso Cave, Ramla Bay and the capital city Victoria.

This was also a great opportunity for parents to include the necessary with the their children’s fun. In fact during their stay in Malta the players became students and sat for 21 hours of English lessons delivered at the St. Edward’s College, where the group was also residing.

Scuola di Pallavolo Anderlini President and Italian volleyball legend, Mr. Rodolfo Giovenzana, also visited the Island, accompanied by the Club’s media official who has filmed training sessions, English lessons and all other activities organised during these days. The coverage, which will be aired in Italy, will no doubt serve as excellent publicity for the Maltese Islands, both as a tourist resort and also as a possible volleyball destination. This can be viewed on the SdP Anderlini website by following the link:

In their last few hours in Malta, the SdP Directors left this message on their Facebook group:
” We are now coming to an end to this new experience for us. They have been 12 days characterized by intense moments of hard work both in the classroom and in the gym, alternated with pleasant leisure activities. We have had loads of fun! No doubt the kids will return home enriched from both the linguistic point of view and from that of sport and culture …. we are sure they had fun too!”

Some of the parents who sent their kids for this new experience, have also sent their own comments on the Facebook group:

“A big thanks to the Italian and Maltese staff for the great work, perfect organization and the enthusiasm that you have given to our children …”

“Thank you for how you made our kids feel good! congratulations and thanks once again”

Once again, Southend Volleyball Club would like to thank the local authorities who have assisted in the organisation of this event, particularly the Kunsill Malti ghall-iSport and the Malta Tourism Authority, besides the Malta Volleyball Association. This was only one of the first few activities that the  collaboration with SdP Anderlini will bring to Malta. The general public is also invited to request more information about future projects by email or phone 79208723.
