May 13, 2023 – The European Sitting Volleyball Championships for Men and Women, scheduled to take place in October 2023 in Caorle, Italy, is one of the most anticipated events in the European Paravolley calendar.
At noon in the Lower Hall of the Civic Center at Piazza Vescovado in the heart of the picturesque city of Caorle, the drawing of lots determined the pools of the Championship.
The 2023 European Championships in Caorle will feature as many as 10 women’s and 12 men’s teams. The participating teams were split into two respective pools to play a single round-robin in the first stage of competition.
Alongside with Master of Ceremony Roberto Sciannamea, the draw was chaired by FIPAV Vice President Adriano BILATO, Caorle Mayor Marco SARTO and PVE President Branko Mihorko who all expressed their delight in having the ceremony and the subsequent competition taking place for the first time ever in Italy.
In addition to the draw, the competition logo was also introduced to the world, courtesy of Susanna Compagnoni, owner of SC Graphics, who designed it. The logo was born from the union of three fundamental characteristics which represent the sporting event: sitting volleyball, the athletes and the hear that symbolises the love for the sport.
We all look forward to some great sitting volleyball battles with only 149 days left to go until the first whistle!
