Swieqi Phoenix Volleyball is fielding ten teams during season 2021/22, in a year when it will be celebrating ten years since parent organisation Phoenix Sports Club opened its volleyball nursery.
Commenting on the anniversary, club president Orlando Bonnici said that Swieqi Phoenix Volleyball has made giant strides in the relatively short time since six girls formed the core of the club’s first U-14 team.
Bonnici explained that thanks to the contribution and leadership of Leonard Zammit Munro as volleyball director and head coach, the club won its first junior titles within two years of the setting up of its volleyball nursery.
“We have never looked back since, winning 21 junior and senrio national titles to date in the meantime,” Bonnici said.
“During these years, we were at the same time adventurous but prudent, basing our decisions on good sports management, bench-marked with developments overseas.”
Swieqi Phoenix Volleyball has won the following several national titles over the years.
Swieqi were crowned U-14 and U-16 champions in 2014-15 while they went one step further the following two seasons as they won a third title – the U-18 crown.
In 2018 they were also crowned as First Division champions besides topping the U-14, U-16 and U-18 categories.
Their biggest achievement arrived in 2020-21 when they won the Super League, National Cup, Super Cup as well as the national titles in the U-15, U-17 and U-19
In a statement, Orlando Bonnici thanked all the players, coaches and sponsors who contributed to making Swieqi Phoenix Volleyball Malta’s leading volleyball club.
