300+ young players send Green Way message for clean beaches in Greece
News from the National Federations

Athens, Greece, April 19, 2016. The Hellenic Volleyball Federation in cooperation with the Municipality of Lavrion, which is situated at the south-easternmost tip of the Attic peninsula, organised last Sunday a Green Way action at famous Kakia Thalassa Beach.

More than 300 children, aged between four and 12, cleaned the local beach and sent a strong message that everybody should do their bit to protect the environment and take care of our common home, our planet!

After contributing to this environmental action, all the kids enjoyed playing Beach Volleyball and learned some tips from former Beach Volleyball champions Michalis Alexandropoulos and Efrosyni Sfyri, as well as from a member of the national Beach Volleyball team, Pigi Anna Metheniti.

The chairman of Beach Volleyball at the Hellenic Volleyball Federation and member of the European Beach Volleyball Commission (EBVC), Mr Athanasios Rerras, referring to this action, said: “This is the first ever Beach Volleyball tournament for children under 12 years of age organised in our country and combined with an environmental awareness action. Children from various cultural and sports associations who live in Keratea cleaned Kakia Thalassa Beach and had a first contact with Beach Volleyball, playing on 10 specially designed courts. It is very important for the children to learn playing our sport at clean beaches!”

“We are very happy with the cooperation with the Municipality of Lavrion, the local council of Keratea and we want to thank them for their support. We promise that these actions will be pursued in many beaches across the country throughout the coming summer! This is the first official event of the Hellenic National Federation for this summer, even though it is still April. So I wish to everyone a happy summer, full of Beach Volleyball action on the clean beaches of our country.”
