May 21, 2018– FIVB Women’s Volleyball Nations League – Macao 2018 Presented by Galaxy Entertainment Group (“GEG”), authorized by the Federation Internationale de Volleyball (“FIVB”), and organized by the Sports Bureau of the Macao SAR Government and the Volleyball Association of Macao, China, will be held from May 22 to May 24 at the Macao Forum. The four participating teams—China, Serbia, Poland and Thailand—will strive for the best results in the Macau leg. China Women’s National Volleyball Team, highly admired by local fans, participated in a volleyball clinic today, interacting with junior players from Macau, and students from Escola Caritas de Macau (“Caritas”) at an invitation of the volunteer team from GEG, the presenting sponsor of the tournament.

Several Chinese players—namely, wing spikers Duan Fang and Zhang Yichan, middle blocker Hu Mingyuan, and libero Wang Mengjie—arrived to the Macao Forum for the attendance of the clinic this morning. Besides sharing insights and tips with the Macau junior players, the Chinese players also had a mixed friendly match with them. About a dozen of GEG volunteer team members and students from Caritas also played volleyball with the players and reveled in the funs of the sport in an excitement-filled atmosphere. Giving the Caritas students a taste of the elation and tensions of professional matches, GEG has particularly invited them to watch the matches at the Macao Forum. After the clinic, Wang Mengjie remarked: “I think I can undertake different types of training at different positions in hopes of enhancing my skill level.” The Chinese National Team will attend a press conference at the Grand Ballroom of The Ritz-Carlton, Macau this afternoon, in which Lang Ping, Head Coach of China, and Captain Liu Xiaotong will brief the media about their preparation for the upcoming matches.
