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.

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
