SEA Games 30: Information about Women’s National Team in Manila (Philippines) on 23rd Nov
On the first day in Manila, the women players were able to get familiar with the weather conditions and had the first training session on today afternoon (23 Nov).
Women’s National Team is now staying at WhiteWoods hotel which 50km far from Manila. This is a 3-star hotel with local foods. The foods are not bad but not plentiful.
