Pärnu VK claimed the Estonian Men’s Volleyball Championship title after four years.


Pärnu VK became the Estonian Men’s Volleyball champions for the eighth time in the club history. They swept the 2018/19 Eesti Meistrivõistlused Meestele playoff finals with Bigbank Tartu by a 4-0, winning Game 4 in the tie-break, partially 25-20, 20-25, 27-25, 15-25, 15-11.  Pärnu prevailed in Game 1 and Game 2 of the finals by a 3-1 and needed five sets to beat Tartu in Game 4.

Pärnu managed to claim the national title despite having a rather poor start of the regular season in which they suffered as much as four defeats in the first six games. But in the second part of the season, they were on a high level, eliminating TalTech in the quarterfinals (2-0) and reigning champions Saaremaa VK (3-0) in the semifinals.

A 21-year-old Brazilian opposite hitter Chizoba Neves Atu crowned the season in which he earned the Eesti Meistrivõistlused Meestele best scorer title (227 points) with 26 points (three aces) in Game 4 of the playoff finals. The libero Silver Maar made 77% positive reception (26 total, one error, 35% excellent). Mart Naaber scored 21 points for Tartu including seven kill blocks.

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Many Strength and Conditioning Coaches/Scoutman are trying to get into coaching. Due to their lack of experience and knowledge, at first, they take a major pay cut in comparison to actual volleyball coaches. Currently, coaching jobs are paying very little, even in the top leagues, and some of the experienced coaches are not taking jobs for 25.000-40.000 EUR, knowing that demands are just as high as before when they were making double of this salary. Unfortunately, club leaderships see coaches as a disposable matter and therefore keep dropping salaries because there are candidates that will take these jobs. I am not here to judge, just to describe some of the dynamics around this profession. Reply

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Interesting trend, that some coaches who specialised on physical training, some who never played volleyball on top level, became pretty successful volleyball coaches. It can be observed in some menś and women teams. It reflects a situation that volleyball has become a very physical sport. Even the world champion country, which in past had taught others, needs coaches from abroad who come into this category. Reply
