Snow Volleyball takes centre stage at Russia’s Winter Sports Festival
News from the National Federations

Lipetsk, Russia, February 13, 2017. A big celebration of winter sports took place on Sunday, February 12 in Russia with many citizens and fans coming out to the streets and joining an action-packed programme. The main event was the so-called ‘Ski-track of Russia’, with almost one million people participating in a mass ski race to set an all-time record of attendance. However, it was not only about skiing since Snow Volleyball also featured on the programme.

The main Snow Volleyball competition took place in Lipetsk, a city some 400 km southeast of Moscow, with the event organised by Roman Pristovakin, an accomplished international Beach Volleyball referee who last summer officiated at the Rio 2016 Olympics. Pristovakin is also the CEO of the Lipetsk-Indesit Volleyball club from that same city.  



The master classes featuring professional players and the matches did feature also a number of local authorities, including Mr Oleg Korolyov, i.e. the head of administration of Lipetsk Region, his Deputy Head, Mr Yury Taran, as well as the Mayor of Lipetsk, Mr Sergey Ivanov and many more. All of them decided to try the game and to play some rallies on the snow.

The Russian Ministry of Sports officially recognised Snow Volleyball in late 2016 and since then a number of tournaments have taken place across the whole country. The first ever Snow Volleyball national championship will take place from March 30 to April 1 in Sochi, i.e. the city that played host to the 2014 Winter Olympics.
