    WNBL names tournament in honor of Sen. Pia Cayetano

    Jun 29, 2021

    THE WNBL is naming the 2021 season after Sen. Pia Cayetano, honoring the sportsperson-official for her efforts on women empowerment especially through sports.

    The Senator Pia Cayetano – 2021 WNBL season presented by Chooks-to-Go is expected to start next month.

    Cayetano is very much involved in sports being a former member of the University of the Philippines women’s volleyball team. She is also into cycling and triathlon.

    Her advocacies in sports include the Pinay In Action (PIA) in which she organizes sports, health, and fitness events for women.

      Cayetano also filed Senate Bill No. 1582 or the Safe Pathways Act that would make the creation of bike lanes mandatory.

      “The WNBL would like to honor Senator Pia as she is really a known supporter of women’s sports. I strongly believe that having the name of the good senator in the first season of WNBL surely adds equity to the league,” said WNBL executive vice president Rhose Montreal.
