Members of the Gambia Volleyball Association will on Saturday converge at the Independence Stadium in Bakau for its annual congress meant to strengthen the operation of volleyball in the country.

Musa Cassa Taal, President of The Gambia Volleyball Association, speaking to Pointsports, pointed out that it has been four years since his executive was elected to office and the February 21st congress, which was supposed to be in March, is meant to restructure the association to its fullest capacity.

"We intend to have a standard executive consisting of 13 members. So we are not only calling for more female participation but for them to take up positions as well," he explained.

He pointed out that only registered clubs will participate in the congress citing Betterness, UTG, Interior male and female categories and Jeshwang as the only teams mandated to send in their two representatives during the congress.

The positions open for election include; president, 1st and 2nd vice-presidents, secretary general and assistant, treasurer, auditor and other members.
