MANILA, Philippines — The first local volleyball tourney amid the pandemic is on as the Philippine Superliga (PSL) troops to Subic, Zambales for the Gatorade-Beach Volleyball Challenge Cup from Feb. 26-28 under a bubble setting.

“Everything is in order. There are certain kinks to be ironed out, but the event is pushing through and the teams are ready,” PSL chairman Philip Ella Juico told the online PSA Forum yesterday.

“This is a historic event for volleyball and non-professional sports since this is the first event that has been given permission by authorities to stage a sports competition,” Juico added.

Perennial squads F2 Logistics and Sta. Lucia banner the eight-team cast of the beach volleyball tilt in coordination with the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) and Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) Region III.

Two sets of teams will represent the Lady Realtors and Abanse Negrense with Toby’s Sports, United Auctioneers and guest team Kennedy Solar Energy-Petro Gazz also joining the fray.

Teams and league officials depart from Manila today and will head straight to the Red Cross Molecular Laboratory inside the SBMA for testing.

The Subic Bay Peninsular Hotel will serve as the main bubble with an extension to the playing venue at the Subic Tennis Court.
