Plans are currently underway for the 2022 West African Sitting Volleyball Championship and the teams are expected to arrive in Nigeria on December 10, 2022, the Nigerian Paravolleyball Federation has revealed.

The West African ParaVolley sponsored competition will be hosted by the Nigerian ParaVolley Federation, led by Kayode Ladele. According to the schedule published by the federation, the technical meeting of the participating teams will take place on December 11, while Para Beach Volleyball will be launched in Nigeria on December 12.

Participating clubs from the Republic of Benin and Ghana have already been confirmed, while those from Sierra Leone, who will join their Nigerian counterparts in West Africa’s first ParaVolleyball competition, are still awaiting confirmation.

“We are excited to host this first edition of the competition, which aims to promote a healthy rivalry between West African countries and develop the sport at a regional level.

“When this was discussed, Nigeria jumped at the idea of ​​hosting the competition because it is in line with our short-, medium- and long-term plans as a federation when we were elected a few months ago,” Ladele said.

Explaining the idea behind the competition, he said that although it does not serve as a qualification for any international tournament, it is the first step for many federations within the West African sub-region to develop the sport within their countries.

“With constant competition, we will not only expose our athletes to international competition, which will ultimately improve their game, but also show the world how amazing our players can be if given the right platform for expression and development.” Ladele concluded.
