The adapted floor volleyball team of the Martorell Volleyball Club travels to Italy to participate, on September 2 and 3, in the 1st International Beach Volleyball Tournament, which will take place in Casal Borsetti, in the municipality of Ravenna (Emilia-Romania) . The championship is promoted by the entities Fitness A.Ni.Ma and Locos per lo Sport.

In the 2019-20 season, CV Martorell took on the task of Marc Vinaixa from Martorell to have a floor volleyball team after he left FC Barcelona. The entity chaired by Manolo Tena “accepted the proposal willingly and became the first state club with a set of these characteristics”, explains Lluís Torró, CV Martorell board member, responsible for the section ground and player.

In addition, it is the third organization from Martorell to expand its inclusive teams, after the Martorell Basketball Club had an ACELL Special Olympics team and the Punt de Trobada Social Club opted for a futsal team.

Currently, the team is made up of a dozen players, some from the former FC Barcelona and others from the Arc de Sant Martí Foundation, who train for more than three hours once a week at the Pompeu Fabra Institute.

In search of rivals who practice this sport, the team will participate in the 1st International Beach Volleyball Tournament in Casal Borsetti. “A friendly with Italian, French and Slovenian teams, all against each other, with the aim of giving visibility to this sport, which is very little known”, explains Torró.

The floor volleyball team is aimed at all those people who suffer from some type of physical disability and want to do physical exercise, either for fun or at a competitive level.

The player must keep his pelvis in contact with the ground, if not when the ball is in play, it is a foul. In addition, the height of the net varies, the sizes of the field and the line is advanced 2 meters instead of the usual 3 meters.

The floor must be synthetic, a little soft or parquet, and there is also the beach option. The ball is the same in both modes. Two teams of six players compete, although in beach volley there are four.
