1st International Prima Donna Cheese Youth Volleyball Tournament

logoPDtournamentFor the first time, Prima Donna Cheese Volleyball School organizes an International Youth Tournament. The tournament will take place on the 28th and 29th of December 2019. For the past couple of years we noticed that there is an increased demand for high level volleyball tournaments at the end of December. Most of the Dutch teams use these tournaments in preparation for the NOJK (the National Open Youth Championships). But here is the thing, these already existing tournaments are often overcrowded, which means that the organization has to turn a lot of teams down.  This made us decide, last year, that we set up our own 1st International Prima Donna Cheese Tournament near Amsterdam. So here we are.
We have chosen as location 'Sporthal de Beuk' in Purmerend, which is only 20 kilometers from Amsterdam! This beautiful location contains seven courts and the best facilities you could ask for in an international tournament.
We have already had some positive contact with various teams from Spain, Russia, the USA and of course the Dutch. And we are looking forward to adding your team(s) to the list!
This tournament is the perfect combination between practicing with your team(s) and making some international friendships.

Even though this will be our first edition we are confident that our staff has enough experience to make sure the tournament will be a great success.
Our organization consists of five people.
Managers: Frits Bleeker (0031 6 54382041), Maurits de Boer (0031 622753583)
Assistents: Yaelle Henry, Mats Bleeker, Dyon Bleeker.
