For the second consecutive year, the French men’s volleyball star Earvin Ngapeth gathered some of the best players in the world at Ngapeth Invitational - a tournament on the beach of Saint-Jean-de-Monts.


Around 300 participants, including children, amateur players, and several world volleyball stars came to the 3x3 tournament that Earvin Ngapeth organized for two days on the wide beach of Saint-Jean-de-Monts.

France national team superstar organized the event for the second year in a row in order to allow ordinary people who love playing volleyball, regardless of their level, to be able to compete with the elite of the world volleyball.


And just like last year, many of his friends who play volleyball professionally, decided to show up on Saint-Jean-de-Monts beach and get involved in the exhibition, such as the 2016 Rio Olympics winner Bruno Rezende „Bruninho“, Nimir Abdel-Aziz, Uroš Kovačević, Simon Hirsch, three of his France NT teammates - Kévin Le Roux, Jean Patry and Jonas Aguenier...

Ngapeth even announced a contest for the best performance of his trademark move – a backward spike.

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
