Speaking at the closing ceremony, member, Nigeria Beach Volleyball Commission and event organiser, Bolcit Barshep-Amakiri, said the competition was organised to encourage beach volleyball at the grassroots.
Barshep-Amakiri, who is also a member of the Plateau State Volleyball Association, said the turnout was encouraging, adding that the participants inspired her and did justice to the theme of the fiesta, Pair to Inspire.
“When this idea was conceived, we thought we would get a few participants within the north-central region, only to get people coming from Lagos, Anambra, Benue and other states; this blew our minds.
“The turn out by the talents that were displayed did justice to the theme and also inspired me indirectly. We clearly need to take this to the next level and make it a yearly event,” she said.
