The Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship titleholders Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle started the new season with a triumph.

 

Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle, who did not play the first round, started the title defense campaign by beating MKS Będzin in the 2nd round of the 2019/20 PlusLiga regular season without losing a set: 3-0 (27-25, 25-21, 28-26). Łukasz Kaczmarek stood out for the team that, a week ago, won the national Super Cup for the first time ever with 14 points.

PGE Skra Bełchatów beat GKS Katowice in a thrilling encounter by a 3-2 (19-25, 26-24, 22-25, 25-19, 16-14) to record a second win in as many games. Before the start of the match, the management board of Skra honored the players who won medals with national teams this summer: Szalpuk, Kochanowski, Kłos, Łomacz, Huber and Ebadipour. The player who was not in this group but has been winning many medals in previous years with Poland, Mariusz Wlazły, top-scored for Skra with 22 points.

Asseco Resovia Rzeszów once again failed to win the match in PlusLiga. They lost at home to newcomers MKS Ślepsk Malow Suwałki by a 3-1 (23-25, 25-17, 25-16, 25-22). Resovia organized a little farewell ceremony for their former player Łukasz Perłowski, who retired at the end of the last season after spending 16 seasons in the jersey of this team. This was a special match for Ślepsk head coach Andrzej Kowal who commanded Resovia for 14 years (2004-2018) and won three Polish Championship titles with them. Bartłomiej Bołądź highlighted for the winning side with 20 points.

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
