Jean Patry is the new opposite hitter of Italian men’s volleyball Championship side Allianz Milano.


The France National Team member Patry will be playing as the starting opposite hitter in Milano next season, replacing Dutchman Nimir Abdel-Aziz.

Given that he’s 23 years old, Patry can be considered a rising star of European volleyball. Last season, while wearing the jersey of Top Volley Cisterna, he scored 375 points in SuperLega, occupying the third overall position in the top scorer’s ranking behind Abdel-Aziz (458) and his compatriot Boyer (384).

Patry showed his true potential during the European Olympic Qualifier in Berlin in January, deserving the title of MVP and Best Opposite Spiker of the tournament through which France secured a spot in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
