The second charity volleyball tournament was held at the end of April and the beginning of May, 2014 in the sports hall of the Faculty of Philosophy - University of Belgrade. It was organized by sports associations of the Faculties of Philosophy and Philology. In cooperation with the brotherly Charity organization Serbs for Serbs, whose work the members of both associations have been following for a long time with the utmost respect, we have decided to give the money (51,000 RSD) raised in this charity action to the eight-member Markovic family from Zemun. They were provided with a fridge freezer and an electric stove in the total value of 57,989 RSD.

 

The tournament consisted of both Men’s and Women’s competitions and there were eight teams in each competition. In the Women’s competition, the competitors were the teams of the Faculty of Philosophy, Faculty of Philology, Faculty of Economics, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Organizational Sciences (FON), Faculty of Special Education and Rehabilitation, Singidunum University, and ICT College. In the Men’s competition, the competitors were the teams of the Faculty of Philosophy (1 and 2), Faculty of Philology (1 and 2), Faculty of Mining and Geology, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and ICT College, as well as the team of „Ekonomika“ volleyball club who showed their humanity and traveled from Valjevo to take part in this tournament, for which the organizers are especially thankful.

After interesting matches in pools, the teams who got to the semifinals in the Women’s competition were the teams of Faculty of Philology, Faculty of Economics, FON and Singidunum. The Faculty of Philology team beat the Faculty of Economics team, and the Singidunum team beat the FON team. In the match for third place, the Faculty of Economics team beat the FON team and deservedly took third place in this tournament. In the finals the match was played between the teams of the Faculty of Philology and the Singidunum University. The Faculty of Philology team played brilliantly throughout the tournament and won the title in the Women’s competition, but the Singidunum team can also be proud of themselves for taking second place, especially if we take into consideration the competition in this tournament.

Not less interesting were the matches in the Men’s competition. After matches in pools, the teams who got to the semifinals were the teams of the Faculty of Philosophy (1) and Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, and the teams of Faculty of Philology (2) and Faculty of Mining and Geology. The match for third place was played between the teams of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Faculty of Mining and Geology, and the victory was won by the Faculty of Mining and Geology team after a great fight in three sets.  The winners of the matches in the semifinals were the teams of the Faculty of Philosophy (1) and Faculty of Philology (2). The Faculty of Philology team (2), who stayed focused and scored the key points in the deciding moments of the match, won deservedly, but the Faculty of Philosophy team (1) were also satisfied for putting another trophy in their trophy display.

After awarding the trophies and certificates to the best teams, there was a picture taking of all the participants, organizers and spectators of this tournament, which is starting to be a tradition. The organizers promised to hold a charity volleyball tournament again in 2015, possibly even better than the preceding two. The same evening the tournament was over, there was a party in a Baš, baš mali Balkan pub, following the successfully finished tournament. The party was another event in which the money was raised for out charity action, and the owner of the pub donated part of the profit to our fund, for which we thank him a lot.

The members of the Markovic family are the parents Mirko and Nikoleta and the children: Petar (19), Deni (17), who suffers from cerebral palsy, Danijel (15), Danijela (14), Teodora (8) and the youngest Viktorija, who turned 14 months. The family lives on Welfare and Child Benefit, because both parents are unemployed. As they say, they sometimes earn money by doing part-time jobs, but that is only a short-term income. We use this opportunity to express deep gratitude of the Markovic family to all the participants of the second charity volleyball tournament, held at the Faculty of Philology.

We also wish to give special thanks to all the teams and their players in both competitions who took part in this charity tournament, to the University Sports Federation of Belgrade, who supported the organization of the tournament as always, to the Volleyball Federation of Belgrade and Serbia who delegated the referees to referee all the matches for free, to the referees themselves who did the job immaculately, to the volunteers of the tournament, to the administration of the Faculty of Philosophy who authorized the use of their sports hall for this tournament and the administration of the Faculty of Philology who helped financially the organization of the tournament.
