Thirty teams are expected to line up over the next few days on the Beach Volleyball Nuffield Pool Area grounds for the Free the Knee 2021 – Charity Volleyball tournament.
The annual events organized by the GFSC over the past five years have benefited from support from the Gibraltar Volleyball Association which has described the event as the first tournament to launch its beach volleyball competitions this summer.
The association hopes to announce a number of tournaments for this summer after the success of last summer in which teams from across the region added to the competitive advantage on the pitch.
This Wednesday evening, Free the Knee 2021 will once again bring local players to the pitch by raising awareness and supporting the Prostate Cancer Support Group Gibraltar (PCSGG).
Over the past five years, the GFSC has raised over £ 30,000 for this great cause, built a strong relationship with the charity and driven a tremendous amount of awareness and help towards the charity’s goals. “Free the Knee” has become a must-attend event during the summer period of the business calendar year.
The tournament starts at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday and will see matches being played in the evening, Thursday at 6 p.m.
The tournament comes as the indoor volleyball league also comes to a close with the presentation and the GibOil League medals on June 29 at 8:30 p.m. at the Tercentenary Sports Hall. On the same evening, the men’s league final game will take place at 6.30 pm, as well as the “best against others” for the women’s league with a game taking place on both courts.
