AGIL Volley Trecate was born in 1983/1984 thanks to Sister Giovanna Saporiti and Marilena Bertini’s commitment: they decided to establish a sports centre in order to create a place for people’s aggregation following the idea that sport could help young people in their personal development and improve their ability to build a good team spirit.
AGIL, which is the club name, is not a sponsor or a trademark, it is an acronym that stands for A = amicizia (friendship), G = gioia (joy), I = impegno (commitment), L = lealtà (loyalty).
That was the initial goal and that is the eventual result: soon the small gym became a big sports hall, so that the club could have a good structure where people could play indoor football, basketball and attend all of the Volleyball courses.
From 2001 to 2003 and again nowadays, since 2013, the club joined the first division of the Italian national league and moved to Novara, in order to play in a bigger sports hall.
Agil Volley’s resume includes:
• an Italian A2 Cup in 2001
• an Italian A2 title in 2012
• a CEV Cup (today Challenge Cup) in 2003
• an Italian A1 title (the highest division of the national league) in 2017
• three Italian A1 Cup titles in 2015, 2018 and 2019
• one Italian Supercup in 2017.
Agil Volley has participated in the CEV Champions League three times (2016, 2018 and 2019).
“We are excited and proud of having claimed a spot in an “all-Italian” final, where in any case our country will secure the Champions League title, something which has happened just twice in the last decade. We will do everything to bring to Novara their first Champions League and, personally, I want to win my sixth Champions League*.“Francesca Piccinini - Captain (*Piccinini has a title from the former CEV Champions Cup to her name as well.)
