The 13th Gira-Volei National Meeting was the first to take place in Castelo de Vide from June 2 to 3.

More than 750 players turned out to play on 51 courts.

To reach the national tournament, young athletes had to go through regional rounds which included 4,200 young participants in competitions held in Viseu, Bragança Coimbra, Beja, Portalegre, Castelo Branco, Guarda, Lisboa, Santarém, Viana do Castelo, Vila Real, Porto and Braga.

The Kinder Cup was then held on June 23 and 24 in Guimarães.

The finals took place during the third tournament of the 2012 FIVB Volleyball World League Intercontinental Round in Portugal, with 22 courts set up outside the Multiusos of Guimarães Hall where the matches were taking place.

Over 250 children played across the weekend and were also able to learn from some of the world’s best volleyball players.
