The Grenada Volleyball Association expressed its gratitude to all the participants, the Ministry of Education, coaches David Thomas and Peer Nasseir, and Glenelg Spring Water through their official Facebook Handle.
The sessions in itself are a great achievement as the interest in beach volleyball on the island continues to grow. This tournament is not just limited to this; it also works as an encouragement to those who are looking to pursue beach volleyball as a sport.
As the nation is moving ahead with the policy of promoting sports on the island, it is likely that the government of Grenada will keep pushing it in order to produce a greater number of sportsmen from the island.
