Belgium Women’s Volleyball national team member Charlotte Leys is a new player of the Polish Championship runners-up Grot Budowlani Łódź.


Belgium national team outside hitter Leys, the bronze medalist from the 2013 CEV European Championships and silver medalist from the 2013 CEV European League, strengthened current Polish Championship runners-up Budowlani.

A 30-year-old Leys will return to playing in Poland after four years, coming from the Turkish side Galatasaray HDI Sigorta. Last time she played in Liga Siatkówki Kobiet, the outside hitter won the national Cup three times (2 with MKS Dąbrowa Górnicza and 1 with Trefl Proxima Kraków). In addition to these titles, Leys also became the Belgian champion twice and Cup winner once (all with Asterix Avo Beveren). Leys was named MVP of the 2013 CEV European League.

Budowlani also engaged the setter Julia Nowicka (BKS Profi Credit Bielsko-Biała) and extended with middle blockers - Slovakian Jaroslava Pencová and Małgorzata Śmieszek, outside hitters Agata Babicz, Anna Bączyńska and Julia Twardowska, and libero Maria Stenzel.

The middle blocker and also a captain Gabriela Polańska left the club.

VNL F6 M: With 5 players in double digits, Brazil down Iran to clinch last semifinal berth

It was a fantastic game. Brazil won previous game 3-2 and most of spectators were predicting that this match is as easy as previous but Iranian players show that anything is possible if you work hard and believe that you can! Brazilian players were stronger and highly skilled but in volleyball, no one can say win is absolute. Reply

I would have to agree here. Leal is a huge addition to a very talented squad. They have been a force all tourney long.
