28 March, 2013
Dusit Thani Dubai has emerged victorious after a grueling two day inter-hotel volleyball tournament this week. The event, hosted at the hotel's colleague accommodation, Baan Dusit, saw the host Men's team controlling the volleyball court against other Dubai hotel teams resulting in a nail breaking final and defeating rivals Fairmont Dubai (16-25) (25-17) (25-22).
The tournament saw a further six hotels competing, including; Shangri-la, Towers Rotana, Rose Rayhaan Rotana, Al Murooj Rotana Amwaj Rotana and Al Bustan Rotana, battling through the heats to see who would reach the much anticipated finals.
Dusit Thani Dubai and Fairmont Dubai managed to secure their place the finals after registering impressive wins against Towers Rotana and Rose Rayhaan Rotana earlier that evening in the semi-finals. While Dusit Thani Dubai's Chandra Abrader Chehetri was adjudged as the best player of the tournament, Lauro Patrick Pacigado, Jr, of Fairmont Dubai took away the honours for the best attacker.
Meanwhile in the women's finals, Dusit Thani Dubai fought a tough game with Shangri-La Dubai, however the visitors took away the trophy (18-25) (13-25).
"This is the first time Dusit Thani Dubai has held such an event and we are extremely pleased with the response from all attendees. Not only was this an opportunity for us as hoteliers to showcase our teams sporting talents, but it also served as a great platform for friendly and fun competition," Mike Audrain, Director of Human Resources, Dusit Thani Dubai, said. "The finals were particularly exciting with tough competition. We look forward to more inter-hotel events to come."
