The Greek Women’s Volleyball Championship debutants P.A.O.K. appointed a Slovakian head coach.

 

Despite earning the promotion to the Greek top division for the first time in the club history, P.A.O.K. officials decided to part ways with the head coach that brought this success to the Thessaloniki team, Dimitris Solkidis. He will not be replaced with a reputable Serbian expert Zoran Gajić, as it was speculated two months ago, but with Slovak Michal Mašek, who has just won the Polish league title with ŁKS Commercecon Łódź.

P.A.O.K. made a great job by renewing the deal with a 28-year-old outside hitter Evangelia “Eva“ Chantava, one-time Greek Championship MVP. The outside hitter Maria Klepkou and middle blocker Eleni Konstantinidou followed Chantava’s footsteps.

As for reinforcements, P.A.O.K. agreed to terms with a 26-year-old middle blocker Nikoletta Karafoulidou. Last season, she competed for AS Makedones. The libero Maria Myridou and middle blocker Ioanna Polynopoulou also signed with the Thessaloniki side. Both came from Division 2 teams - APS Admiral Votsi and Nea Genea Asvestochoriou, respectively.

WC 2019 W: Netherlands surprisingly sweep Brazil on Balkestein’s birthday, China wreck Russia

I don't like the comment that Balkestein-Grothues underperformed! We all know she is there to receive and defend. As you said: 0 aces for Brazil, so she did a great job! Aswell did Schoot, who was almost perfect in receive and defence! Reply

WC 2019 W: Brazil beat weakened team of Serbia in thriller, China win Asian derby

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(
