The 11th-placed side in the 2018/19 Italian Women’s Volleyball Championship Lardini Filottrano remained without a player with whom it signed the contract for the next season.

 

Filottrano published that the U.S. player Paige Tapp has informed the club that she was not able to commit to sporting experience away from home country for personal reasons.

As a 24-year-old middle blocker said to Filottrano management, she wants to move away from playing professional Volleyball. The sudden decision of Paige Tapp, that came a few days before the start of the preparations for the new season, will force Filottrano to intervene on the market that is about to close.

Paige Tapp has been playing professionally for only three years. She came to Filottrano from Allianz MTV Stuttgart with whom she won the German Championship last season. With the U.S. National Team, she won the gold medal in the Pan American Cup two times as well as in the NORCECA Champions Cup, a week ago.

Her twin sister Hanna Tapp is also a professional Volleyball player anda member of the U.S. National Team. Next season, she will defend the colors of the Brazilian top division newcomers Flamengo.

By Mark Lebedew: The Best Player You Might Have Heard Of...but have probably forgotten

Older video, records and analyses, editing, research by Mark Lebedew are very interesting. I take his work as priceless.. No one else do such a work...He provides us with many volleyball jewels, observations.. In past we often could not see many top tournaments, or matches on TV ….There was no Internet, no YT. Only very limited TV ... We often did not know the background, problems on some tournaments - see e.g. what happened during Italy vs Netherlands OG 1992, on M.L. YT channel, and how it had influenced a final with Brazil..
In time of pandemic, we can take a lesson from some former activities on courts . In past there was a much more decent behaviour during matches, avoiding useless personal contacts , no so and such intimacy as nowadays, no expressive shouting as is a current rule after killing spike or blocks, ourts... Only at the end of the match, tournaments emotions were same as now... (Now we see on 75 and more the useless, risky, ritual teamś hugging per a match) .. Moreover until 1998, volleyball was for TV fans very friendly - due to of a perfect visible. recognizable white ball. Since this time, the screen fans eyes suffer - volleyball has become a pantomime on screens.
Moreover the game was much more smoothly - no so many and so long interruptions as nowadays.. Majority of referees had a respect..
I suppose, if volleyball wants to survive this pandemic crisis, it will have to return to some above mentioned procedures.. Systematically...
