Additionally, members of the junior and youth national teams – namely Mina Popovic, Aleksa Brdjovic, Danica Radenkovic and Dusan Petkovic – were in attendance.
“This was a memorable year” said Mr. Boricic.
“We had very ambitious goals and plans right from the start and we can proudly say we have fulfilled most of our dreams. As we played host to the 2011 European Championship – Women we embarked on a promotional campaign of the sport that lasted for 6 months and turned into a unique success. No other Championship has ever had such an incredible media and marketing exposure. Both our senior national teams were crowned European champions and this is something special in the history of the sport. We have showed that we have a very strong development program in all age groups. With our “Street Volley” project we have involved thousands of children in the sport and so many more will follow in the footsteps of our current European, World and Olympic champions” proudly stressed Mr. Boricic.
