Laurel eyes beach tourney for volleyball resumption

/ 04:00 AM September 27, 2020

The Philippine Superliga (PSL) is hoping to resuscitate volleyball through a much more manageable plan.

A proposal for a three-day beach volleyball tournament in Subic, Zambales province, has now been forwarded to government health authorities for its approval, according to Ian Laurel, the league’s president.


“The [proposal] was well-received … and they said will elevate it or we could go directly to the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases for approval,” he told former PBA chief Noli Eala in Saturday’s episode of “Power & Play.”

Laurel’s revelation comes on the heels of the PSL’s meeting with the Philippine Sports Commission, Department of Health and Games and Amusements Board last Thursday.


“We had to think outside the box and figure something out. So we came up with beach volleyball,” said Laurel, who patterned volleyball’s comeback efforts after the PBA.
