WELL-KNOWN sports administrator, Isaac Abraham has been elected as president of KwaDukuza Volleyball Association (KDVA) for the 22nd successive year at its annual general meeting held at The Quartz Conference Centre on Thursday night.

In his presidential address Abraham said: “Despite the sub-standard conditions of our volleyball courts I must commend our players who come out virtually every Thursday to strut their stuff in quest for glory.

He heaped praise upon Grove End and Sunbrook Volleyball Club, who clinched the EZE’S Electrical Premier League and KDVA Division One League title respectively. He was full of praise for Grove End and KSST, who hoisted the KDVA flag high at the VSA Club Championship held in Cape Town.

KDVA was indebted to their sponsors, namely Ronny Chinnsamy of EZE’S Electrical, Bobby Naidoo of Natdale Insulating, Dan Moodley of Trophies Engravers, Devan Moonsamy of Moon & Sons Agencies, Robin Reddy of Triple R Interiors, Anil Mohanlall of KZN Paints, Gerald Govender of Nandos Stanger, Yaseen Mohamed of Caminamix Services and the Reuben Family of Darnall for their generous sponsorship in promoting volleyball in KwaDukuza.

Abraham said that the appointment of a development officer would ensure that all wards in KwaDukuza are playing volleyball thus paving the way for a vibrant schools league.

Abraham said: “We need to encourage women in sport and address transformation (not only in the administration of the sport, but also in terms of encouraging more players of colour).”

Other officials elected to serve on the KDVA cabinet for the next two years are Krish Kistan (vice-president), Sandra Athman (secretary), Rajiv Mathapershad (treasurer), Neven Baldeo (technical director), Samke Dlamini (development officer), Thula Somduth (schools director), Revy Harryprasad (media and marketing officer), Nonhle Dlamini (Women in sport director) and Jessie Ragvan (exco member).

In other volleyball news, Grove End and Randsons will contest the Top 8 Knockout Cup tonight (Wednesday) at 8pm at the association courts. In the curtain-raiser Warriors Sport will lock horns with Sunbrook at 7pm.

All registration booklets for the 2016 season will be collected on Thursday night at The Quartz Conference Centre at 7pm. Clubs that fail to submit their booklets and monies (R500 affiliation fee and R80 player registration fee) on Thursday will not be allowed to participate in the 2016 league programme.
