We have the first official volleyball competition being played after the shutdown of all the activities related to this sport across the world due to the coronavirus pandemic!


Although national lockdown restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus pandemic were eased in most of the countries in late April and beginning of May, allowing social contacts and reopening of sporting activities, volleyball wasn’t among sport disciplines that resumed on an official level unlike football, basketball... until a few days ago!

Vietnam kicked off both men’s and women’s championships, that were initially to take place in March but due to the outbreak of the pandemic have been postponed, on June 13. Furthermore, it was kicked off and continued with the presence of spectators on the stands. The 2,000-seat hall in Hà Tĩnh, in which the club of the same name hosted the match against Long An in the men’s competition, was packed. The same trend continued in the following games such as the one between Hà Tĩnh and VLXD Bình Dương.

Earlier, the Vietnamese government assessed that the number of cases infected by the COVID-19 no longer presents the risk to the community.

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

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

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.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

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
