The Italian women’s volleyball side Golden Tulip VolAlto 2.0 Caserta engaged the China National Team player.


Zheng Yixin came to the club fighting to avoid relegation in Serie A directly from China.

The middle blocker spent the first part of the season in Guangdong, finishing 4th in the Chinese Championship. The 24-year-old player won the gold medal with the country’s U20 national team in the 2013 FIVB World Championship. Two years later, Yixin took the gold medal in the Asian U23 Championship. With the senior national team, she claimed the title in the Asian Volleyball Cup twice (2016, 2018) and in the 2017 FIVB World Grand Champions Cup.

Caserta found themselves in the middle of a scandal for letting go of nearly half of the squad, mostly foreigners, and played the first couple of matches in 2020 with several youth team members instead of them.

ITALIAN CUP M: Lube prevail in adrenaline-filled finale, Perugia’s 23-game winning streak over

One of, if not the best match ever. Absolutely brilliant play by both sides. Fantastic Final. Reply

ITALIAN CUP M: Trentino drop 2-0 in sets, Lube become first finalists

Trentino really started fast in set 1 and 2 and looked really smooth but Lube's experience and identity showed through when it counted. Bruno found the hot spikers at the right time and Simone Gianellli didnt feed the ball enough to his middles and Russell who hit .680 and zero errors. Both Trentino's other pins received more sets and far lower scoring percentages. Doesn't look like Kovacevic will be back this year to form so the coaches need to be smarter.

Hoping the Perugia/Modena match is as good. Reply
