LOOK: Updated UAAP Season 80 beach volleyball schedule
University of Sto. Tomas will try to retain the men's and women's UAAP beach volleyball titles starting October 5.
As a precautionary measure for the safety of student-athletes, the UAAP board decided to adjust the game schedule of Season 80 beach volleyball tournament that will unfurl on Thursday at the MOA Sands SM by the Bay.
In a memo released by Fr. Jannel Abogado, O.P, DTPS of tournament host University of Sto. Tomas, the opening match of each playdate will start at 3:00 p.m. instead of the 1:00 p.m.
“Last September 23, 2017 during the UAAP Board Managing Directors meeting, the UAAP Season 80 president advised us to move UAAP beach volleyball tournament from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. to avoid players to play under the heat of the sun,” according to the memo. “In this light, the tournament date will be moved starting October 5-8 and 12-15, 2017 from 3:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at MOA Sands SM by the Bay.”
