Former Germany Men’s Volleyball national team member Sebastian Schwarz has ended his career.


A 33-year-old German Sebastian Schwarz retired from professional volleyball, announcing his decision at the post-season ceremony of his current club United Volleys Frankfurt for which he competed in the last two seasons, being appointed a captain. In the last season, he was struggling with a back injury which probably speeded up his thoughts of finishing career.

“I think this is the right moment to put an end to this, after having a really great time here. I had a wonderful 15 years. To be able to play at this level for so long is a real privilege, for which I am eternally grateful,” said Schwarz and added that he now wants to turn to other things in life, mainly to his wife and little daughter.

The outside hitter has won the 2007 CEV Champions League (VfB Friedrichshafen), German Championship twice (VfB Friedrichshafen), German Cup four times (VfB Friedrichshafen and Hypo Tirol AlpenVolleys Haching twice each) and Polish Cup once (Trefl Gdańsk). With Germany national team, Schwarz lifted the trophy in the 2009 CEV European League and won a bronze medal in the 2014 FIVB World Championship. Schwarz had the honor to take part in the 2012 London Olympics.
