Tours completed Round 11 of the 2019/20 French Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season with a win.


Slow start of the season, worst in the last more than 20 years, didn’t discourage titleholders Tours who have recorded five wins in a row, including the one against vice-leaders prior to the Round 11 match - Montpellier. Actually, Tours took over their place in the charts and settled just behind the leaders Rennes with 7-4 and 22 points.

Latvian Hermans Egleskalns top-scored for Tours with 18 points. Canadian Ryan Sclater tallied 21 points for Montpellier, while Brazilian Nicolas dos Santos served 6 aces.

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.
