1,500 kids attend Mini Volleyball Festival at iconic Panathenaic Stadium
News from the National Federations

Athens, Greece, May 30, 2016. More than 1,500 young players set an all-time record of attendance when participating in the third edition of the Mini Volleyball Festival organised by the Hellenic Volleyball Federation at the Panathenaic Stadium, the iconic venue which played host to the first modern Olympic Games in 1896.  

This year’s edition of the event had a focus on recycling activities and was organised under the slogan ‘Green Mini Volleyball Festival’ in order to inform and educate the young participating athletes about the importance of recycling electronics and other electrical devices.

As many as 52 Mini Volleyball courts were set up at the Panathenaic Stadium, where more than 1,500 children enjoyed their favourite game, bringing joy and positive energy to many other people living in the centre of Athens. They all went home with some green memorabilia as a souvenir of their participation in the event. At the end of the festival, right in the middle of the iconic stadium all participants expressed their love for Volleyball with a loud cheer and danced to the famous sirtaki Zorba’s dance.  



The President of the Hellenic Volleyball Federation, Achilleas Mavromatis, congratulated the young athletes, the clubs and the schools, the parents, the volunteers and all the participants of this spectacular event: “These young players sent today a strong message that despite the difficulties Volleyball is on the rise and we can look at the future full of optimism.”
