WPV Podcast: John Kessel’s 25 years in ParaVolley—and beyond

The World ParaVolley history podcast returns with fresh insights into the ever-winding story of the sport. That said, we continue celebrating the International ParaVolley Day for a second straight year with the newest episode dropping today featuring former World ParaVolley development director John Kessel.

In this episode, Kessel shares some wonderful stories from the Atlanta 1996 Paralympic Games and looks back into his long 25 years of service to ParaVolley. He also shares some insights into the future of ParaVolley as the sport marks its 41st year in the Paralympic programme. Kessel has already retired from service, but his passion and enthusiasm for ParaVolley remains evident in his stories.
