Katrineholm hosts real Volleyball festival in combination with European qualifier
News from the National Federations

Katrineholm, Sweden, January 5, 2014. By the time the Duveholmshallen in Katrineholm is hosting a first-round qualifier to the 2014 CEV U19 Volleyball European Championship – Women, there is much more going on there than just the Volleyball matches of that tournament. A real Volleyball festival is taking place in that same venue with competitions open to all age groups.
Patrick Edgren, who is the assistant coach of Sweden U19 national team, is also the chief of one of the Volleyball teams from the district of Katrineholm whose members are 15 years old or younger.  
On Saturday Edgren was sitting on the bench supporting head coach Adrienne Marie during the game that Sweden played with neighbors Norway and on Sunday he was back in action taking care of his younger students. “It is a great opportunity for me to coach and work with teams with different goals, skills, and players” he says. “It is also a lot of fun because we have been working together with these girls for quite some time. Even though they come from different clubs, they have been playing really well so far and showed that they are real Volleyball enthusiasts. We are all here to have fun” Edgren says.

Katrineholm is also hosting the so-called Senior Grand Prix, a competition which is open to the top four teams as per the standing halfway through the current season of the Elitserien, i.e. Sweden’s highest division. The semis are played on Sunday with the finals following on Monday, January 6.

“Katrineholm is hosting the biggest Volleyball event here in Sweden where we have the opportunity to meet many players, coaches, fans” says the President of the Swedish Volleyball Federation, Saffet Eraybar. “On top of this we could also host the first-round qualifier to this year’s U19 Women European Championship and this is an additional source of joy for us. It is also a great opportunity for the younger players to be able to follow the matches of this European qualifier where they can look up at other players that can turn into their role models. It is also a unique chance for our young players to get to watch international Volleyball, something that does not happen every day here in Sweden” he concludes.
