RADIO JAMAICA STEPS INTO THE RING
KINGSTON, Jamaica, May 27, 2011
The Radio Jamaica Group joins fellow newcomers Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC) along with PanCaribbean Bank and Hillel Academy today, Sunday May 29, for the third and final one day rally in the Reggae Jammin Business House Volleyball Competition at the UWI Gymnasium.
Fielding a fledgling team, RJR will be hoping to get a foot in the door ahead of the start of the indoor league next week. The new teams will be testing their skills against the likes of defending champions and current leaders Bank of Jamaica, as well as Guardian Life, UWI, AMECO and the National Water Commission.
According to Paula-Anne Porter Jones, organiser of the tournament, the addition of the new teams is a shot in the arm for the seven year old league and by extension, for volleyball in Jamaica.
“We are very happy to have the new teams. From the outset, the league has been a developmental one, to introduce the sport to new players, and what this shows is that more persons in the workplace are interested in playing volleyball. We hope that we will be able to start attracting teams from different parts of the island as well.”
Some 40 plus matches will be contested on Sunday, with BOJ Gators looking to dominate once again in the Mixed and Male team categories. More importantly, the team will be aiming to extend their lead in the overall season rankings since close rival Guardian Life is breathing down their necks, just five points behind in the standings.
Not to be outdone, the NWC Liquidators will be looking to gain ground on the front runners before the Indoor league phase of the season gets underway in June.
The UWI females will also be looking for another rally victory having gotten the better of BOJ in the second rally final.
In addition to the games on court, team members will also be attempting skills challenge tasks, as they take advantage of the final practice session before the real skills challenge competition starts in the June league.
The Reggae Jammin Business House Volleyball competition is also sponsored by Supreme Ventures Ltd., Unilever Jamaica, Matate Holdings and Kingston Mini Cakes. The competition is organised by CNIS Limited.
