Namibia: Senior Volleyball Leagues Benefit

Windhoek — Bank Windhoek has once again lived up to their promise of developing local sports, through a sponsorship of N$40 000 to the Namibia Volleyball Federation (NVF).

The donation will go towards assisting NVF with the hosting of the annual National Volleyball League Championship.

The sponsorship will benefit both the Men's and Ladies senior leagues, with equal amounts of N$20 000 each. The national league is scheduled to start on the 28th of this month and will run until September, with the last match scheduled for September 15.

The latest sponsorship complements an earlier donation of N$30 000, which was used to host the Bank Windhoek Namibia Open Beach Volleyball Tournament held in Swakopmund during March 23 - 25.

"The Namibian Volleyball Federation is extremely excited about having Bank Windhoek on board as sponsor of the Bank Windhoek National Men's and Ladies Leagues.

The relationship between Bank Windhoek and the NVF started back in 2011, when Bank Windhoek got involved in Namibian Beach Volleyball, as well as the Volley All Festival, which is now staged annually in cooperation with the Bank Windhoek Kidz Fun Fair.

This relationship has now grown and extended to indoor Volleyball and I am looking forward to a great long-term partnership between Bank Windhoek and Namibian Volleyball," said Heiko Diehl, President of the Namibian Volleyball Federation.
