MANILA, Philippines — Looking to further boost its beach volleyball program, Creamline has added Dzi Gervacio to its roster.

Gervacio, a national team member and one of the founders of Beach Volleyball Republic, hopes to help the sport reach greater heights in the country.

“Ever since I started playing beach, it taught me a lot more perspective with regard to the sport and beyond. I fell in love with it. I wanted to learn more and understand it better. I also know I can grow so much as an athlete with beach volleyball and I’m excited to see how much further I can go,” said Gervacio on deciding to go full-time in the sand court.

“I’m grateful that Rebisco trusted our mission of growing the sport by providing this platform exclusively for beach volleyball athletes — it’s the first of its kind. Knowing that beach volleyball has now a home, and a nurturing one too, I can’t help but choose this path for me,” she added.

Gervacio was part of the Philippine women’s team that bagged the bronze medal in the 30th Southeast Asian Games in 2019 to end the country’s 14-year medal drought in the sand court.

“Having Dzi in the Creamline Beach Team is a great addition to the long-term goals and programs that we have,” said Charo Soriano, program director for Creamline Beach Volleyball and co-founder of BVR.

“Her experience during the last SEA Games will bring about the much-needed prowess in terms of team composition. I’m excited to see her fully embrace the sport and focus on her dreams as a beach volleyball athlete.”

The former Ateneo standout was with the Perlas Spikers in the PVL before joining Creamline’s beach volleyball program.

“My dream is to grow the sport, to see more beach volleyball athletes, send them internationally not just to participate but to compete and excel in it too! I dream about finally sending a Philippine team to the Olympics Why not?” said Gervacio, who is reunited with Sisi Rondina, Bernadeth Pons and Dij Rodriguez at Creamline.

Being part of Creamline is just among the different roles Gervacio serves. She is also a member of the Philippine National Volleyball Federation’s Beach Volleyball Commission and just recently, has been appointed the head of Far Eastern University’s volleyball program.
