An Afternoon With The League of Heroes: Nuvali Cup 2012!

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

Nuvali is one of the most undiscovered places in the south. If you are a Manila boy like me it would take you a couple of hours to get from here to there but each time I do that, I feel every bit of my body just wanted to scream freedom as I watch tons of activities that I wanna do there. This weekend was so nice that I had to do just that during a special event called League of Heroes 2012 where kids, pre teens from different schools around the metro converge and steer away from the hustle and the bustle of the city then drop down on all fours for mud, dirt and the rough terrain of Nuvali that morning. Present in that occasion were some of the best booters in the world the Philippine Azkals.

Carlie de Murga, Aly borromeo, Chieffy Caligdong, Jonah Romero, and Nate Burkey

I was able to attend their DIRT weekend too where there were several competitions in biking, running and others. It looks like NUVALI wants to converge all these hobbies into their place where it's impeccably nature friendly. They have some of the most impressive line of activities the whole year and its not just benefiting the ones living inside Nuvali, more so the whole community. I also have seen several schools participate in beach volleyball and other sports available that afternoon. It was a little muddy because of the modest rain we encountered that morning.

We also had a game with them and the kids!

I love how the eyes of the kids just light up when these guys talk to them a bit before doing this game which Mr. De Murga won. The kids were also kicking, getting the ball and rolling in the mud much like what I used to do when I was a kid. Did you know I played soccer? Hehe

No weather disturbance can stop these guys from playing beach volleyball!

We also saw a baseball field on top of this trench where the Beach Volleyball matches are held. This place is promptly called THE FIELDS. It is a 10-hectare property that fits in 3 FIFA-sized football fields, 2 complete baseball fields, 3 beach volleyball courts and a multipurpose clubhouse.

This is an annual thing they've started since 2010. It's getting bigger and bigger as more schools and participants hold various sports competitions inside the paradise called NUVALI. Make sure you join the DIRT Weekend in November where cycling sports will rise to the occasion. BMX or big trail bikes will converge in Nuvali just for that.

For more adventurous games and lifestyle that doesn't have to sacrifice nature, give Nuvali a visit in Sta. Rosa Laguna. It's just a stones throw away from the actual toll gate so don't be afraid to ask around!
