Women's national teams of Poland and the Czech Republic played the first international volleyball match since the pandemic of the new COVID-19 started more than three months ago.

 

Polish female players were waiting for the first national team match of the new season for as many as 171 days, more precisely since losing to Turkey in the semifinals of the European Olympic Qualifications in January.

Although they played mostly with younger players, Poland beat the Czech Republic at home in Wałbrzych in front of cardboards instead of fans, which was already seen in sports who set off their actions earlier, by a 3-0 (25-14, 25-19, 25-19). The coaches agreed to play an additional set, which ended with the victory of the Czechs by 26-24.

The second meeting between these two sides will be played tomorrow (20:30 CET) at the same venue.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
