SNOW VOLLEYBALL: ARGENTINA ON ITS ROAD TO AUSTRIA TO PLAY THE WORLD TOUR

WEBSITE


This Sunday, the Argentine delegation that will represent our country in the inaugural edition of the Snow Volleyball World Tour, the new discipline promoted by the International Federation (FIVB), embarked on a trip to Europe. Virginia Zonta, Julieta Puntín, Eugenia Tuliz and Cecilia Peralta will be the team that begin its journey next Thursday 28 in Wagrain-Kleinarl, Austria.

Zonta spoke about the initial sensations of participating in the World Tour for a team entirely composed of players from beach volleyball: "We are very happy and motivated to participate in this new sport, even more because it is the first time that a World Tour of this discipline is made. Obviously we are uncertain about how the snow or the cold will work or how does it feel playing with shoes, especially for us that are so used to play on the sand".

The team will arrive in Austria on Monday, where they will train on Tuesday and Wednesday waiting for the debut. "We are going to take the opportunity to learn a little more about the sport since it is played with three players and one more in the bench and there are other variants that we have to adapt to" Zonta explained.

After the first stage in Austria, the tournament will move to Plan de Corones/Kronplatz, in Italy, from April 4 to 7. The third round, meanwhile, will be in San Carlos de Bariloche from 1 to 4 August.
