European Volleyball Championship

The European Volleyball Championship is a sport competition for national teams, currently held biannually and organized by the CEV, the European volleyball federation. There are both men's and women's competitions.

The first European Championships were held in 1948 in Italy (men) and in 1949 in Czechoslovakia (women). The initial gap between championships was variable, but since 1975 they have been held every two years.

Famous quotes containing the word european:

    European society has always been divided into classes in a way that American society never has been. A European writer considers himself to be part of an old and honorable tradition—of intellectual activity, of letters—and his choice of a vocation does not cause him any uneasy wonder as to whether or not it will cost him all his friends. But this tradition does not exist in America.
    James Baldwin (1924–1987)
