World Cup campaign begins Monday for women’s sitting team

NOV. 10, 2023:  Canada’s women’s team is set to compete at the 2023 WPV Sitting Volleyball World Cup in Cairo, Egypt. The tournament also serves as a qualifier for the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games.

Canada arrived in Egypt after a staging camp in France: "We had a great time training over three days in Val-de-Reuil and have arrived in Cairo ready to play in our first ever World Cup," said Canada’s head coach Nicole Ban. "Our pool has some tough opponents, but the plan is to focus on one match at a time, looking to improve as we go through the tournament."

Canada is currently ranked 2nd in the world, next to the USA, who is already qualified and not attending this tournament.

The qualification opportunity will be awarded to the highest ranked team that has not already secured a qualification spot via the 2022 World Championship or one of the four Zonal Championships as determined at the completion of the World Cup.
