From departmental level to French Ligue A in three seasons
For the PARIS Volley middle blocker all has gone through in a lightning speed. After he had not been practicing any sport for two years after he tried handball, Philippe Tuitoga was attracted to volleyball upon his summer experience and signed his first volleyball license at age of 18 in Ivry sur Seine, his city, located near Paris. In his first season, he alternated between the junior and the senior amateur level teams of his club.
Quickly spotted for his athleticism, he joined the club of Charenton and played in the fifth national level for two seasons. This was already quite extraordinary for someone who had discovered the sport only three years ago. PARIS Volley scouts realized that this was a high-potential player and did not hesitate to sign with the then 21-year-old on his first contract. This first season in a professional structure enabled Philippe to discover the requirements of high-level volleyball and continue his improvement.
