MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING signed between ParaVolley Europe (PVE) & the National Sitting Volleyball Training Base of China (NSVTBC)
Following the visit of the Chinese National Women Sitting Volleyball team in Slovenia in October 2017 upon the invitation of ParaVolley Europe and the Slovenia Women National Sitting Volleyball team, the National Sitting Volleyball Training Base of China returned the favour and welcomed the Slovenia Women National Sitting Volleyball team in Shanghai for a few days of shared training and practice games.
PVE President Branko Mihorko had the opportunity to meet again with Liu Jin – President of National Sitting Volleyball Training Base of China in Shanghai and also introduce himself to Lu Cailiang, President ParaVolley Asia-Oceania in Hangzhou.
It was a great opportunity to continue the discussion started in Slovenia on how to strengthen the links between ParaVolley Europe and the National Sitting Volleyball Training Base of China (NSVTBC).
