Volleyball League of Innovations Cup of Technopark "Kalibr", Moscow
Sports tournaments are one of the most beloved annual traditions of the Kalibr technopark, of which our Moscow office is a resident. In past years, five-a-side football competitions were held on the territory of the technopark, and this year, according to the results of an internal survey, volleyball became the most popular sport, and it was decided to organize the first tournament of the Innovation Volleyball League!
The METROPOLIS team successfully reached the final and fought for the status of the winner with the Rubytech team. In a tense struggle for first place, we went side by side for two games, but with a three-point lead, Rubytech was able to win. The second place will be an incentive for us to train further and a sporting challenge to take 1st place next year!
The results of the Volleyball League of Innovations Cup of Technopark "Kalibr":
