Iran’s sitting volleyball manager Hadi Rezaei says that the Russian team will hold a one-week training camp in Tehran.
According to Rezaei, the Russian sitting volleyball team will travel to Iran on May 8.
“Russia is the second team in Europe after Bosnia and Herzegovina. They could not participate at the 2016 Paralympic Games after doping ban,” Rezaei said.
“The Russian team will play several friendly matches with our senior and junior teams in the camp,” he added.
“So many countries want to play with Iran sitting volleyball and we are reviewing the options. Germany is one of them and the team will likely travel to Iran in July,” Rezaei stated.
“We will announce the players for the national team by the end of the week. Iran is preparing to take part in the 2017 ParaVolley Asia Oceania Sitting Volleyball Championships which will take place from June 5th to 12th in Hangzhou, China,” he said.
