The anticipated event is scheduled to run from November 26 to 29 at the pristine sands of the West Side Beach Resort in Lekki, Lagos State.
Players and enthusiasts alike have been enjoined to anticipate a pulsating display of athleticism, skill, and teamwork, as the event promises not only fierce competition but also an electrifying atmosphere that celebrates the essence of beach volleyball.
The exceptional performances of the competing teams would be recognized, as top performers will receive significant cash prizes.
Apart from the prize money for the top three, there will also be a consolation prize of N35,000 for some of the teams taking part in the competition.
Speaking with journalists, the Chairperson of the Local Organising Committee, Glory Agboola, stressed the need to give opportunities to the younger ones and assured that the championship would be interesting.
“We are happy with the response and looking forward to an interesting championship,” she said.
“Personally, it has not been easy because whatever you need to do, you will need funds and getting such, especially from cooperate organisations, has not been easy.
“However, we are putting a lot into making it a success and hopefully build on the result of this maiden edition ahead of future championships,” she added.
The registered teams are Golden Spikers VC (Male and female), Glorious Spikes, Vico Spikes, Refiners VBC, Glorious Babes and Vico Babes.
