MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine National Volleyball Federation (PNVF) will send its men’s team to Qatar next month and the women’s squad to Brazil on April 12 as it gears up for the 31st Hanoi Southeast Asian Games set May 12-23.

The 20-member men’s pool will begin training next week in Taguig before it opens training camp in Qatar a month later. The women’s side, also composed of 20 players, will first train separately with their mother Premier Volleyball League (PVL) squads before flying to Brazil for a three-week camp.

PNVF president Ramon Suzara said they could only start the training of the women’s team in April because most of the players will see action in the 2022 PVL Open Conference slated March 16 to April 9.

“We will then announce the final 14 players who will make our SEA Games team after their Brazil training,” said Suzara in an interview with Radyo Pilipinas yesterday.

The country is out to improve on its silver-medal finish in the men’s side and a fourth-place effort in the women’s division in the SEA Games.

Suzara isn’t discounting the possibility of striking gold in both divisions.

“It’s possible,” said Suzara.
