ROME- In an atmosphere of contagious enthusiasm, the last act of the Beach Volley School ACEA Trophy 2023 was archived, the worthy conclusion of a very special year. Almost three hundred athletes from the Juniores Male and Female categories met at the lido Lido di Ostia, where no less than seven fields were created for the occasion (the Allievi final took place on Tuesday) and enlivened the beach as usual ingredients, healthy competitive spirit, Sun, sea and the explosive will to put all the fun and the desire to be together first.
« That’s the nicest thing about the beach volleyball school– said a more than satisfied Andrea Burlandi, President of Fipav Lazio-the ability to experience carefree shared moments beyond the end result. Of course, the winner will be happier, but we didn’t see any sad faces, just the satisfaction of just being there ».
Between palm trees and umbrellas, the white color of the t-shirts celebrating the volleyball school’s thirtieth anniversary, worn by students, insiders and numerous teachers, prevailed. From the point of view of competition history, it is worth noting the double success of LS Democrito (of all places in Ostia), who fulfilled the previous night’s predictions by defeating LC Socrate (Junior Female) and Pacinotti (Junior Male, two practically historyless finals). LS Majorana, LC Kant, Istituto Fermi and LC Benedetto Croce stopped in the semifinals. They presented President Burlandi with Francesco Galdo as ACEA representative (a wonderful party as always, as he explained at the end) and Katia Meloni as FAO representative. To conclude, Alessandro Fidotti, Cultural Director of the Volley School ACEA Trophy, bid farewell to an exceptional season finale, thanking the students, teachers and the organization’s fundamental players, Tiziana Maggiore, Luca Bencivenghi and Pierpaolo Santoro. Attention now turns to May 24th and 25th, the dates of the eagerly awaited indoor finals at the Palafonte in Rome, and May 30th with the award ceremony of the traditional competitions in the historic headquarters of the Corriere dello Sport.
« To date– concludes President Burlandi- Over four hundred entries have arrived, some of which I have previewed, they are true fantasy masterpieces. The guys from Volley School keep surprising us ».
