Paris are proud again after recording the third successive win in the 2019/20 France Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


The nine-time French champions, who returned to the Ligue A Masculine after a year, have improved their position in the charts by four places after sweeping Narbonne at home in Round 8 of the 2019/20 regular season: 3-0 (27- 25, 25-22, 25-23). Paris moved from the ninth to fifth place on the table (4-4; 13 points) but which is even more important, they recorded the third successive win. The Dutchman Robin Overbeeke top-scored for the team from the French capital with 12 points. Cuban Yordan Bisset poured in 21 points for Narbonne.

Rennes retained their leading position in the standings by prevailing over Poitiers by a 3-1 (30-28, 25-23, 22-25, 25-23). Brazilian Rafael Araújo chipped in with 29 points for the winning side, while Moroccan Zouheir El Graoui scored 20 points for Poitiers.

Montpellier and Tourcoing beat Nice and Nantes Rezé, respectively, to line up behind Rennes in the charts.

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.
