Kemer, Turkey, 15 October 2021 – Strategy Day 2021 set the tone for what lies ahead in ParaVolley Europe, as representatives from more than a dozen countries got together here today for the opportunity to receive information and discuss various topics concerning the movement.
The discussion centred around the future of ParaVolley and focused specifically on competitions, now that ParaVolley has come a long way. Only in the year 2021 and despite the restrictions caused by the pandemic the outcome following the European Sitting Volleyball Championships is expected to be over 200 matches, including indoor and beach events.
The move to a full digital implementation across all aspects of management and organisation was also elaborated on, as ParaVolley Europe strives to go paperless.
This includes registration & licensing, accreditations, web services, plus referees’ education and testing.
The digital age has already arrived in the field of getting the message across – with competitions now enjoying their dedicated websites with the inclusion of live streaming, full statistics and extensive media coverage.
Also discussed was attracting funding for the ParaVolley movement through European Union projects – although this will require external collaboration.
The Strategy Day event came just two days before the start of the 2021 Men’s & Women’s Sitting Volleyball European Championships, at Kemer’s seaside Daima Biz Hotel at this eastern Mediterranean resort just west of Antalya.
The hotel will also host the European Championships, starting on Sunday, with a record participation of 16 men’s and 11 women’s teams. The competition hall where the three courts have been set up is conveniently located within the hotel grounds.
