Chairman, Lagos State Volleyball Association, Owolabi Martins, has urged all the participating schools to begin preparation in earnest for the Senator Anthony Adefuye Volleyball Secondary Schools Championship.
The school sports championship, sponsored by Senator Adefuye, will be held from 27-29 June at the Mobolaji Johnson Sports Centre, Rowe Park, Yaba, Lagos.
Owolabi said that the association is expecting the participating schools to begin their preparation now as he foresees a keenly contested tournament among secondary schools in Lagos.
“Any school that want to do well in the championship should begin preparation now because the competition will be tough considering the numbers of schools taking in the two days event,” he said.
Owolabi, who has spent 34 years as boss of the volleyball association in Lagos disclosed that the tourney will be sued to discover young talents that may represent the state in the forthcoming National Sports Festival, which Lagos will host later in the year.
Owolabi expressed gratitude to the sponsor for identifying with volleyball in Lagos State.
