World Champion. The title has a nice ring to it doesn’t it? Each year, presented by the Huntsman World Senior Games, the greatest 50 and over volleyball teams in the world converge on St. George, Utah, USA to play for top honors. The Global Cup – World Senior Volleyball Championships, is an invitation only, true world-championship tournament where the teams hale from around the world and represent their country on the court.
“The Global Cup is really unique,” says Merrill Barney, Sports Director for the Games. “There really isn’t anything like it in the world. Teams come and are playing for national pride.”
“The level of play is truly fantastic,” adds Kyle M Case, Games CEO. “These are the best players in the world in their age division and they deliver a great show when they play.”
In 2006, the Huntsman World Senior Games hosted the first ever Global Cup World Senior Volleyball Championship with six men’s teams competing.
