Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, October 13) — It's a busy schedule ahead for local beach volleyball players as a couple of tournaments are slated in the fourth quarter of the year.

Philippine National Volleyball Federation board member Charo Soriano said their group will stage two On Tour legs this month in Cagayan loaded with 12 to 13 squads.

"We will bring Beach Volleyball Republic On Tour in Sta Ana, Cagayan. It will feature two legs — October 21 to 24 and October 28 to 31. We already have at least 12 to 13 teams that are playing both in the men's and women's division," she told CNN Philippines' Sports Desk Wednesday.

The local competition aims to prepare the national team for an international tilt in Phuket, Thailand next month.

"That's in preparation for an international tournament in Thailand this November 23-27, the Asian Senior Beach Volleyball Championship. We will be sending our national teams there," Soriano said.

The PNVF is also planning to hold a beach volleyball tournament in Ilocos Norte in December to cap off the year.

"We'll be having a Philippine National Volleyball Federation Beach Volleyball Championships in Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte this December. Our schedule is full packed this fourth quarter of 2021," Soriano said.

Cagayan is under general community quarantine with heightened restrictions until October 31, while Ilocos Norte is under general community quarantine.
