Tallin plays host to the second Sit2Play project meeting – promoting Sitting Volleyball in European schools
Tallinn hosted the second meeting of the “Sit2Play -Inclusive Sitting Volley: a tool to change the perception of disability” Erasmus+ project. Four months after the kick-off meeting in Rome, the representatives of Paravolley Europe, the Italian Paralympic Committee and the six other partner countries (Italy, Bulgaria, Turkey, Finland, Slovenia and Estonia) gathered in the Estonian capital to discuss the organisational details of the first European project dedicated to the promotion of sitting volleyball in schools. During the two days of meetings and seminars, the Sit2Play project partners analysed the first set of data collected during the national events already organised in view of the upcoming national competitions and the final tournament that will take place in Italy in November. CEV President Aleksandar Boricic attending the European League Final Four tournament in Tallinn took the opportunity to briefly join the meeting to show his support and wish good luck to the Sit2Play stakeholders: “The CEV takes notice and applauds such initiatives as this one – Boricic explained – from projects involving the youngest starting schools to those aimed at the world of disability as Sit2Play does, and we are prepared to give it our maximum support”. In November, the Sit2Play project will culminate with the organisation of the Continental tournament that will involve the winning schools of the Sit2Play partners’ national tournaments.
