In our weekly section on Wednesday, Phoenix People, we are meeting today one of the most promising talents in Maltese Volleyball as well as one of the hardest working players within our nurseries. Monica Zammit Munro started playing Volleyball with Phoenix SC and has now gained a regular spot in all our teams. Let’s meet Monica..
How long have you been involved in volleyball? How did you start?
Two years. My sister Mariana had started a year before and my Dad (my Coach today) and her encouraged me to start practicing with the club as well.
My biggest success was reaching the decider stage of both the u14 and u16 leagues last season. My biggest disappointment was losing both matches by a few points.
Unfortunately the sport is not practiced much in schools, so there are few children who start this sport at a young age.
I have been at Phoenix for two years.
Every time I put on the Phoenix shirt is a special moment which I share and enjoy with my team-mates.
I look forward to winning the u14 and maybe even the u16 leagues this year, and fighting till the end to win the u18 league.
I see myself playing for this club and doing my part to bring more trophies to the club
A person that inspires you?
