The Nationals wrapped up their training camp on Tuesday.

The Philippine national women’s volleyball team wrapped up its Bangkok, Thailand training camp with a 28-26, 17-25, result over Japanese club team Toray Arrows on Tuesday morning.

The Filipinas played only two sets against the Japan V. Premier League runners-up and called it a day as they prepare for their travel to Nakhon Ratchasima for the inaugural ASEAN Grand Prix set for Sept. 20-22.

It was the Nationals’ second tune-up match against the Japanese team that concluded their six practice games as part of their buildup for the Grand Prix.

Toray Arrows defeated the 14-woman Pinay squad, 24-26, 16-25, 11-25, 18-25, 19-21, on Sunday.     

The Nationals lost to Thailand U-23 team, 25-22, 25-22, 23-25, 17-25, 13-15, last Monday and only won one set against powerhouse Thailand senior squad, 12-25, 19-25, 12-25, 21-25, 15-9, on Tuesday. The PHI team on Wednesday eked out a 24-26, 26-24, 25-16, 20-25, result in a rematch over the THA U-23 squad before winning all four sets against Bangkok University, 25-19, 25-19, 25-15-, 26-24, last Thursday.   

The squad breaks camp on Wednesday morning and will take a bus ride to Nakhon Ratchasima.
