On Sunday matches of the opening round in the 2019/20 Italian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season. Savino Del Bene Scandicci won a derby against Èpiù Pomì Casalmaggiore.


In an away match valid for the first round of the 2019/20 Serie A regular season, which was a repeat of the last season’s play-off quarter-finals, Scandicci had to cancel more than one match point against Casalmaggiore in the fourth set before emerging victoriously at the tie-break: 3-2 (26-24, 22-25, 21-25, 32-30, 12-15). Even 24 points from Cuban Kenia Carcaces and 7 kill blocks from Serbian Mina Popović were not enough to push Casalmaggiore to the win. Popović’s compatriot Jovana Stevanović made 5 kill blocks for Scandicci, while the Dutch Lonneke Slöetjes was their top scorer with 17 points.

There was another tie-break in matches held on Sunday. Il Bisonte Firenze recorded a home win against Unet E-Work Busto Arsizio thanks to 19 points from Alice Degradi and 6 kill blocks from Sara Fahr. Puerto Rican Daly Santana made an impressive 83% reception (13 digs, 62% perfect).

Banca Valsabbina Millenium Brescia’s outside hitter Camilla Mingardi made the best scoring output on Sunday but also in the entire Round 1. She chipped in 29 points in a four-set win of her team against a nine-player squad of the visiting side of Golden Tulip VolAlto 2.0 Caserta (newcomers in the top division). The defensive display of Mingardi's teammate Francesca Parlangeli is also worth mentioning. The libero of Brescia made 95% reception (19 digs, 42% perfect)!

Volleyball proclaimed most dangerous sport regarding risk of contagion with COVID-19

I believe the study was about indoor 6's volleyball. Many folks here is the US play outdoor (and some of us play without clothes) 4 on 4 and don't high five each other. We also rotate about 5-6 balls that sit in the sun in between usage. Reply

Serbia's ability to be in the metals in all big competitions, the last three years, is the result of the good handling of the rest exactly after the end of the European Championships. The first matches of Serbia in vnl the last years have the same philosophy. I insist. I would prefer o metal in big tournaments from metal in every year vnl. Thw players haven't enough time for rest.

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply
