Volleyball Females in support of Ghoncheh Ghavami

Dear All,  On Sunday 12th October The Academy of Beach Sports are making it “A Volleyball Day for Ghoncheh Ghavami”. To recognise the issues she has faced since watching a game of volleyball in Iran.

We would dearly love as many females playing volleyball or watching volleyball to be in support of her on this day.  I am sure you have seen her reports but the below links explains her situation and we as a club feel we wanted to draw attention to her plight.
We are asking all our females in our club, our junior female members, parents etc to turn up and watch our games and to publicise that as much as possible.
