Sesc RJ are the winners of the 2019/20 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Cup.


Sesc RJ beat national vice-champions Dentil/Praia Clube, which were aiming to win their first-ever trophy in the competition, in the final of the 2020 Copa Brasil feminina de vôlei in Jaraguá do Sul (a repeat of 2016 final) by a 3-1 (18-25, 25-21, 25-23, 25-23). Thus, the Rio de Janeiro team won the 4th trophy in the national Cup, becoming the most-titled side in the competition that was abandoned from 2008 to 2014.

The ladies coached by Bernardinho have qualified to play the next edition of the Super Cup against the Superliga champions. One-time Olympic winner Tandara Caixeta marked an encounter in front of the packed stands at the Jaraguá Arena (9,000 spectators) by a great performance. An experienced opposite hitter scored 40 points, setting the new record for points in a single match in any competition organized by the Brazilian Volleyball Confederation (CBV)!

Sesc showed to be a pretty high obstacle for Praia this season as they already beat them in the Superliga. Both teams continue the fight for the national championship, being tied at the top of the charts at 38 points.

Recall how the men's final went.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
