About US: MARANTANA
Marantana, one of the two Viennese volleyball clubs for lesbians and girlfriends, is proud to organise the European Lesbian Volleyball Tournament 2008. Marantana was formed in 1990, when a couple of women started to play volleyball. One year later Marantana participated in a small lesbian tournament in Munich. From 1992 on we have attended almost every Easter Tournament as well as various Eurogames. Marantana is member of the European Gay & Lesbian Sport Federation.
The (each year fantastic) Easter tournament already took place in Vienna once: fourteen years ago, in 1994. Some of the organisers from then will also be present this year 🙂
