Beach Volleyball Competition

Beach Volleyball Competition
Sunday 2nd October 2011 at OP Bungalows, Chaweng Beach

Volleyball is one of the national sports of Thailand.  Most hotels on Samui have staff teams as do many big companies accross Thailand.  For this special event teams of friends came together from different hotels, different gay and straight businesses as well as expats, locals and tourists - all competing for the glory of winning this first event - and the stunning prize money of 5,000 baht first prize.

Thai Volleyball reached international status in the LGBT community with the release (year 2000) of the movie The Iron Ladies. The true story of a Thai male volleyball team that competes in the national championships in 1996 with a team of gays, transvestites and transsexuals. A must see for anyone interested in Thailand, gay life, and volleyball.

This event raised 5,000 baht which we used to make good various repair jobs around the school as requested by the head teacher.  You can see pictures of how this money was spent under For Charity > School Repair Project
