“Varsity is the biggest competition of the year, it will be a dream come true to enter the league,” says Daniela Lucia Bowers, secretary of the volleyball club.
Competition can be scary at times, whereas in play4fun, you will play for fun in a series of non-competitive matches. Play4fun offers the opportunity to enjoy the game of volleyball in a stress-free environment.
“Volleyball is pretty big in Galway, not as big as rugby or GA but we have our club with quite a bit of interest in it,” says Daniela.
The club is trying to get more females involved in the sport for both competitive and non-competitive matches. “It’s natural to be scared of the net, we are trying to get more females in,” says Daniela.
