One of the biggest club - player connections in the world volleyball, between Cannes and Victoria Ravva, is about to end.


Ravva, the iconic player of Cannes, might leave the most titled ever French women’s volleyball club after 25 years. According to the information of Nice-Matin, Ravva, who finished her playing career in 2015 and is now the Cannes General Manager, is the subject of an economic dismissal procedure by the team from the French Riviera.

The three-time CEV Champions League MVP, now a 44-year-old, came to Cannes in 1995 and won two Champions Leagues, 19 titles of the French champion, and 18 Cups. The Georgia-born former middle blocker has moved into the offices after retiring, five years ago. First, Ravva was in charge of marketing, communication, and securing partnerships. Then, she took the role of a General Manager. Her jersey number 12 was retired by Cannes after she stopped playing volleyball actively.

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.
