Negrense volleybelle Bernadeth Pons is more than excited with her indoor volleyball return after four years with Creamline Cool Smashers in the 2023 Premier Volleyball League (PVL) Invitational beginning this Saturday, June 24.

The Negros Occidental’s Talisay City-native volleybelle admitted that she was still in the adjustment stage but is confident that she can regain her old indoor volleyball groove back.

“Naninibago pa ako sa indoor,” Pons said in an interview with One Sports’ The Game. 

“Before ako nag-training, nag-review ako ng games kung paano maglaro para ma-refresh na lang din ako ulit,” she said.

“Utak ko, beterano talaga ako, pero andun pa ko sa process na nag-a-adapt sa system ng Creamline. ‘Di siya ganun kadali,” the former Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws star added.

The last indoor volleyball stint of Pons was with the Petron Blaze Spikers in the defunct Philippine Super Liga in 2019.

Pons, along with Choco Mucho Flying Titans recruit Cherry Ann Rondina, has stepped away from indoor volleyball action the past four years to turn their focus on beach volleyball.

During their time away from indoor volleyball, Pons and Rondina have participated in various beach volleyball tournaments and even represented the country thrice in the Southeast Asian Games.

However, Pons said she was excited for the upcoming PVL action and assured the Cool Smashers fans that she could return to her fighting form.

“Nakaka-excite ulit maipakita sa kanila kung paano ako maglaro indoors,” Pons said. 

Kahit na four years akong nasa beach volleyball, nais ko maipakita na kaya ko pa din sa indoor,” she added.
