February, 2 is celebrated as Youth Day in Azerbaijan. To mark this occasion Volunteers of Baku 2017 participated in the second Bowling Tournament which took place in Meqafan entertainment centre and was organized by Workforce Department.
Overall, 72 Volunteers took part in the Tournament and were split into 12 teams. Each team had 6 members.
“La Familia” team became winners of the day. According to them, "la familia" means "family" in Italian and the team's victory was a result of their ability to work as a family.
The Capitan of the team, Volunteer of Baku 2017 Islamic Solidarity Games Vusal Memmedov said: “We find new friends, develop our leadership skills and of course learn how to work as a team at such events. But our team is more than just a team, we are family!”

It's worth mentioning that the 1st Bowling Championship took place in the On TOP Bowling Center on 24 December 2016. Taking the volunteers' keen interest in bowling into consideration, it was decided to hold the 2nd Bowling Championship.
