The president of the Ghana Volleyball Association, Paul Atchoe, has been appointed by the head of the Africa Volleyball Confederation (CAVB) as the technical supervisor for the upcoming Under-21 Africa Nations Beach Volleyball Cup from April 3 to 10.

Atchoe is expected to depart Accra on April 2 for the competition which also involves Ghana’s Under-21 beach volleyball team, Nigeria, Niger, Benin, Cote d’Ivoire and 19 other participating countries.

Atchoe, who a fortnight ago was re-elected as the president of the Ghana Volleyball Association (GVA), told the Daily Graphic that his new role would enable him to acquire the needed expertise to train Ghanaian officials in that field.

“I expect to gain the needed experience and knowledge as a beach volleyball technical supervisor and impart that into beach volleyball officials in the country”, he said.

The vice-president of the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC) also intends to sensitise Team Ghana on the technical areas of the game to enhance their performance in the competition.

“This is an opportunity for me to ensure we perform creditably well in this competition and qualify to the World Championships”, he revealed.
