THE SHAKEY’S V-League is bound to change as it takes a step towards becoming a commercial league with the Open conference starting off this Sunday with four non-school teams joining three regular member schools in what promises to be a blockbuster offering by the country’s premier women’s volley league at The Arena in San Juan.

In their continuing effort to bring the sport to a higher level, organizers are putting up a tournament that will not only continue to showcase the leading volley schools’ prowess but also those from three “military” teams and a commercial squad.
