The hosts Dentil/Praia Clube and San Lorenzo started the 2020 South American Women’s Volleyball Club Championship in Uberlândia, Brazil, victoriously.


Dentil/Praia Clube demolished Bolivian side Universidad Católica de Boliviana at the start of the 2020 Sudamericano de Clubes femenino in front of their own crowd at the Arena Sabiazinho in Uberlândia, leaving rivals at single digits in points in two sets: 3-0 (25-10, 25-7, 25-8). The match was marked with the return to the court of Praia’s opposite hitter Nicole Fawcett. The American player recovered from a sprained right ankle injury that sidelined her for a long time.

The second game of the opening day was an all-Argentine duel. San Lorenzo celebrated a 3-0 triumph over national champions Boca Juniors.

In addition to these four clubs, one more is taking part in the tournament and that’s the reigning titleholders and also Brazilian champions Itambé/Minas. Unlike the men’s event, women’s is played in the round-robin format and the team with the best score will rule the continent and secure a place in the next FIVB Club World Championship, which will be played in December this year.

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.
