The games of Genter Vôlei/Bauru in the Brazilian Superliga might be closely watched next season in case they hire the first-ever player who has competed in both Men’s and Women’s volleyball competition - Tiffany!

 

Last season was the debut season for the Brazilian receiver/opposite Tiffany Pereira de Abreu, who underwent a sex change in 2014, in the Women’s volleyball. She has spent it in Italian Division 2 side Golem Software Palmi, causing a lot of commotion as the players of other clubs in the league expressed their disagreement with the fact she was allowed to compete.

In the 2017/18, Tiffany (born as Rodrigo Pereira de Abreu) might wear the jersey of Bauru and compete in her homeland for the first time since she became a woman and for the first time in any volleyball top division.

At the moment, she only trains with Bauru who gave her a chance to recover from a left-hand surgery…

FIVB are testing new rules at WCH U23: Serve (VIDEO)

I honestly don't see the use of changing every time the rules. People at some point don't know anymore what the exact rules are, and at this time I'm talking about player, coaches, ... , people with much affection for the sport. People that don't know the sport, can't follow at all this evolution of rules. In consequence they lose interest in the sport and stop following it.

Also if this rule would apply, this will for many youth teams an issue to learn this kind of services, as they don't have the room behind the court as the professional player to learn this kind of service without landing in the court. I know courts where there's only 1 meter behind the service lines.

If we want the game to become more spectacular again, we should simply raise the hight of the net. People are becomming taller and taller and jumping higher and higher, the logical evolution would be to raise the net hight.

IT will impact the service presure and the attack presure, resulting in longer rally's.

Thanks just my personal opinion.

I wonder who has the same idea? Reply
