It seems that the corona crisis affects the careers of Dutch female volleyball players a lot...


The libero Kirsten Knip is the third player of the National Team of The Netherlands that decided to temporarily put her career on hold this year. A player with 237 caps for “Oranje“ thus joined Slöetjes and Plak who reached the same decision.

The 28-year-old Knip said that she won’t be playing on a club level until January 2021 but will be at the disposal of the Dutch Team this summer when it gathers to train. She played for Romania’s CSM Volei Alba Blaj last season. Knip explained in an interview for the country’s federation website that she had an offer to continue playing in Romania but wanted to spend more time with her family.

She made her debut for the National Team of The Netherlands in 2012, becoming silver medalist at the 2015 and 2017 CEV European Championships and bronze medalist in the 2016 FIVB Volleyball Nations League.

CHN M: Chinese federation gives in to pressure, male foreigners will play Super League

Great news on the Men's Super League. The Women's you referred to in the news is actually not the same with the Super League though. It is a separate tournament roughly called National Championships where the provincial teams compete for the top honour. Women's Super League won't start until much later. If foreign players are allowed in Men's tournament, then it only.makes sense the same would apply to the women's. Let's keep our fingers and toes crossed! Reply
