Unveiling the timetable for the competition, yesterday, a member of the organising committee, Dare Kuti, acknowledged everyone, who partnered for the success of the competition, saying without their support, the programme would not have been possible.
â€śI want to appreciate all who made this programme possible because without this partnership, I do not think this competition would have taken off.
â€śOrganising any sporting event, especially one that is not football, can be tough, but we are happy that this is finally happening despite several obstacles we faced,â€ť he said.
He commended stakeholders, including the Kwara Sports Commission, the Kwara Volleyball Association and the Kwara State Volleyball referees and the media for their contributions to the tournament.
The competition, which started yesterday, will end tomorrow with the winners getting various prizes.
