The 2019/20 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season has started with a big upset as Esporte Clube Pinheiros prevailed over Sesi Vôlei Bauru.


Pinheiros surprised last season’s play-off semifinalists Sesi Bauru at the opening of the 2019/20 Superliga Feminina regular season and won the match at home in the tie-break: 3-2 (25-22, 26-24, 23-25, 17-25, 15-10). The winning side was led by Edinara Brancher, who came to Pinheiros in the offseason exactly from Sesi Bauru. She poured in 25 points. Azerbaijani international Polina Rahimova put down 30 points (5 aces, 4 kill blocks) for the visitors, while Valquíria Dullius “Val“ made 5 kill blocks.

The champions Itambé/Minas spoiled the return of C.R. Flamengo to Superliga after 13 years: 3-0 (25-22, 25-21, 32-30). A two-time Olympic champion Sheilla Castro made her re-debut in the Brazilian championship after five years and returned to the club volleyball after three years. Actually, she ended a three-year break from volleyball in general this summer when she competed for Brazil National Team at the South American Championship. American Deja McClendon top-scored for Minas with 15 points. Fernanda Isis Silva “Fê Isis“ made 11 points for Flamengo.

Vice-champions Dentil/Praia Clube were also successful. They swept Valinhos on the road by a 3-0 (25-16, 25-21, 25-15). Priscila Daroit “Pri Daroit“ stood out for the team from Uberlândia with 17 points. Maiara Basso scored 10 points for the losing side.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
