🏐 Event Cancelled 🏐
It is with great regret that we announce the decision taken today by the co-organizers of the Eulevoto 2020 tournament and the members of the governing board of the Contrepied volleyball association, to cancel the Paris edition of the EuLeVoTo which was to take place from 10 to 13 April.
In view of the latest government decisions and the mandatory conditions to limit the spread of Coronavirus COVID-19 on the French territory, we are under the obligation to apply the rules for this event.
In addition, the successive decisions of the National Volleyball Federations FFVB and FSGT to cancel all sports matches in France ranging from the professional to the amateur level lend further weight to our decision.
Finally, the latest ministerial order issued yesterday (March 14, 2020) by the Ministry of Solidarity and Health, chapter 2, stipulates that “any gathering, meeting or activity bringing together more than 100 people simultaneously in a closed or open environment, is prohibited on the territory of the Republic until April 15, 2020. ”
Today’s special meeting resulted in several decisions, including that to reimburse the registration fee of all players and supporters. The treasurer of the association will soon send an e-mail to each team captain.
At this stage, we cannot take a position on proposing this tournament at a later date but will be sure to get back to you on this issue.
Team EuLeVoTo Paris 2020
It all began in 1989 when a group of lesbian berlin volley-ball players came up with a crazy challenge : organizing a lesbian European volley ball tournament, which was called Eulevoto (EUropean Lesbian Volley Tournament).
Thirty years later, the Eulevoto is still up and running ! Compared to the traditional international gay and lesbian events, the tournament is unique in itself as it is organized each year in a different city by a group of volunteers from that same city. The tournament is played through two days, offering different game levels, which allows everyone to get in the game. Whether you are a confirmed player or a hard-at-work beginner, you can take part in one of the major sports event of the year.
Year after year, and to name a few, Amsterdam, Brussels, London, Copenhaguen, Paris or Barcelona have already welcomed and hosted Eulevoto.
Each year the tournament gathers more and more participants. To this day, more than 17 countries have been represented: Germany, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, Finland, France, the United Kingdom, Island, Italy, Poland, the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland.
