VOLLEYBALL fans in General Trias, Cavite were treated to an action-packed showcase as the PLDT HOME Ultera Install Patrol kicked off its nationwide tour featuring the Amihan women and Bagwis men's volleyball teams.
Subscribers of PLDT HOME Ultera were given the chance to meet and greet popular players which included Ateneo Lady Eagles Alyssa Valdez and Dennise Lazaro; De La Salle Lady Spikers Mika Reyes, Ara Galang and Kim Fajardo; UST Growling Tiger Mark Gil Alfafara; and NCAA MVP Howard Mojica.
The event was also graced by volleyball standouts Gretchen Ho and Mitch Datuin and TV personality Ate Gay.
The General Trias leg of the tour commenced with a motorcade from Barangay Manggahan to Biclatan with Mayor Ony Ferrer and volleyball spikers Rachel Anne Daquis, Ran Ran Abdilla, Jen Reyes, John Vic de Guzman, Aiza Maizo and Peter Torres.
The General Trias Sports Complex was overflowing with fans who were at the venue as early as 4 a.m., eager to get a good view of the country’s best volleyball players in action. The event kicked off with a volleyball clinic conducted by Amihan and Bagwis players for grade school and high school students from 12 participating schools.
In two exhibition games, the crowd watched as their own volleyball selection went up against the volleyball superstars — the Bagwis against the General Trias men’s team in one game and the Amihan versus General Trias’ best female high school players in the other.
The Install Patrol celebrity crew also included Miss Universe 2014 Top 10 Finalist MJ Lastimosa and top noontime variety show Eat Bulaga’s Wally, Jose and Paolo Ballesteros, courtesy of PLDT HOME Ultera Install Patrol which brings ultra-fast LTE broadband access to more homes in the country.
