Kathmandu, January 26

New Diamond Academy is all set to organise the first Shivam New Diamond Cup National Open Women’s Volleyball Tournament at the Dhorpatan Volleyball Training Centre courts in New Buspark from February 4-6.

A total of six teams — top six teams of the ongoing 13th Red Bull Dhorpatan UM Women’s Double League Volleyball Tournament — will compete in the event, informed tournament coordinator and New Diamond Academy coach Kumar Rai at a press meet today.

“We were about to organise the tournament last month but failed to get approval from Nepal Volleyball Association due to busy schedules. We are including only six teams as we need to finish the event within three days. However, the event will be organised in a bigger scale from next edition,” informed Rai.

The top two teams of the league-cum-knockout tournament will get Rs 151,000 and Rs 101,000, while third and fourth placed sides will receive Rs 51,000 and Rs 21,000 respectively. Similarly, the best player of the tournament will take home Rs 10,000, while the best spiker, setter, blocker, quicker, server and defender will be awarded with Rs 5,000 each. The estimated budget of the tournament is Rs 3.4 million. Shivam Cement is the main sponsor of the tournament.

Meanwhile, Shivam Cement’s Sales and Marketing Vice-president Sajan Devkota handed over cheque of Rs 500,000 to coordinator Rai at the same programme.

Meanwhile, the organisers informed that volleyball enthusiasts Narayan Bahadur Maharjan and Nabin Gurung will sponsor the second and fourth prizes respectively.
