At the tournament was played very good sitting volleyball, certainly so far the best seen in our city. "Feniks" expectedly won vs the team from Bačka Palanka and was expectedly defeated in the semifinals vs the team "Banja Luka". However, "Feniks" here very seriously opposed to one of the best teams in Europe.

The second match inside the group and the match for the placement, both against hybridized team "Smeč", passed in the similar manner. Our play was not bad and we had our opportunities and advantages during few sets. Unfortunately, our mistakes always came at moments when the result was at the breaking point. This way, we made it much easier to our opponents.

Final Standings:

1. OKI "Banja Luka"
2. OKI "Crvena Zvezda"
3. KSO "Smeč"
4. KSO "Feniks"
5. OKI "Obilić"
6. KSO "Serva"

Closing ceremony with the delivery of the awards was done by Mr. Novak Grbic. On this occasion he praised the KSO "Feniks" for the excellent organization of the tournament, which again, would not have been possible without the help from SSIO and OKI "Banja Luka"from Belgrade, the winner of this tournament.

The winner was declared by Mr. Milan Živić, the most experienced player of this sport in Kikinda.
