Swine Flu concerns snag volleyball tourney

LUBBOCK, TX (PRESS RELEASE) - From the Commissioner of SURVA and the Director of Lubbock Volleyball Club:

Due to the continued concerns expressed to the SURVA Board and the host club for the SURVA Regional Volleyball Tournament and the increasing awareness of the magnitude of the flu outbreak, we feel it is in the best interest of the majority to postpone the scheduled tournament until further notice. Because of the uncertainty of what the future holds, no date can be proposed at this time.

We realize that this will be a financial burden on many who have made travel reservations and we apologize for any other inconvenience you may have incurred, but in the interest of common sense, it is the only decision that makes sense at this point in time.

Many regions across the United States are also in the same situation and USA Volleyball will do everything it can to allow regions to certify their representatives to the National Tournament.

More information will be forthcoming about the future of the tournament when it becomes available.

Sincerely,

Rudy Nava SURVA Commisioner

Michael Weichman Director Lubbock Volleyball Club
