The Mercantile Volleyball Association of Sri Lanka is once again organizing the annual Mercantile Volleyball Tournament in a bid to popularize the national sport and to widen interest in the game in the mercantile sector. Over 100 teams participated in last year's tournament and the Association hopes for a much larger response this year. 
 
A member of the Sri Lanka Volleyball Federation said, this is the fifth successive year the Association is holding the tournament since its revival in 2012 after a lapse of five years.  
 
The key objective of the Association is to provide a meaningful avenue for mercantile employees to be free of mental fatigue, whereby participating in sports can enhance their performance. Volleyball being a team sport helps to build team spirit among the employees, thus benefitting the organization they work for. The game also helps to unearth hidden sporting talents among the employees while helping them to improve their health.
