Volleyball is the fourth most popular team sport in Tanzania after football, basketball, and netball. Right now volleyball is more popular in Tanzania’s coast regions where many people play beach volleyball. The process of becoming a common club sport in cities and on the countryside is still in the beginning stages of its development. However it has a huge potential. This promising opportunity to make volleyball a more popular and competitive sport is what makes the local volleyball federation so keen to work with us.
Currently the biggest problems are that playing fields are missing and balls are too expensive for the teams. They usually train with one or two balls only which also don’t last long on the rough surfaces. Technical and tactical trainings are not common among the teams.
When we see the enthusiasm among the current teams and the interest of spectators during matches, we are convinced to bring the volleyball passion from the Tanzanian beaches to the city of Mwanza in the upcoming years.
