President of the Nigeria Volleyball Federation (NVBF), Engineer Musa Nimrod told sports writers at the venue that the President Cup has lived up to expectations of the beach volleyball community. He said the Nigeria Beach Volleyball Commission will ensure that the young players discovered at the tourney get adequate attention by organising regular tournaments for them.

Hear him, “the President Beach Volleyball Cup is the first tournament in the calendar of the Federation and I am happy with what I have seen. We have a couple of young players who are playing beach volleyball for the first time and they have been impressive.

“There are two categories in the President Beach Cup and they are the U19 and the senior caregory. The U19 exposed a lot of young players and the commission is working tirelessly in ensuring the players get a lot of exposure.”

Nimrod charged coaches across the country not to relent in the discovery of young players. “The coaches are the engine room of the Federation; I am calling on coaches in the various states not to relent in discovering players. Nigeria is blessed and there are lot of untapped players waiting to be processed; the coaches are the right set of people to refine them.”
