Vakifbank Eczacibasi have taken the lead in the finals of the Turkish Volleyball elite women’s league.


It was a super-exciting game between these two sides as the championship title will rate the season of both teams.

Eczacibasi have managed to win the game after taking an amazing tie-break 15-12 against Vakifbank.

It was also a battle between Tijana Boskovic, who ended the game with 35 points, and Zhu Ting who scored 27 for Vakifbank. Kim Yeon Koung contributed with 19 in Eczacibasi.

Who wins the series, the season for that team will be considered as a successful one since these two teams didn’t manage to advance to the finals of the Champions League.

Actually, Eczacibasi have already won two trophies in this season (Turkish Super Cup and national cup) and they want to add the third to their trophy room.

The Turkish Women’s Volleyball league, finals:

Vakifbank – Eczacibasi 2-3 (25-23, 17-25, 19-25, 25-18, 12-15)

Third place game:

Galatasaray – Fenerbahce 0-3 (17-25, 20-25, 13-25)

Probably Vakif will be from the top in 2018 to the bottom in 2019. Tijana will beat Zhu. Nice to see Beyza back. Vakif should but Rahimova, waive to Zhu and Ebrar. Need some good players.

No one is helping Zhu in attacks except middle blockers. Sloetjes and Robinson are underachieving. Vakifbank has better middle players, Eczacibasi has better outside hitters. If Vakifbank can find one outside hitter to help Zhu, then they can beat Eczacibasi, otherwise Boskovic, Kim and Larsson will score somehow.

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Many Strength and Conditioning Coaches/Scoutman are trying to get into coaching. Due to their lack of experience and knowledge, at first, they take a major pay cut in comparison to actual volleyball coaches. Currently, coaching jobs are paying very little, even in the top leagues, and some of the experienced coaches are not taking jobs for 25.000-40.000 EUR, knowing that demands are just as high as before when they were making double of this salary. Unfortunately, club leaderships see coaches as a disposable matter and therefore keep dropping salaries because there are candidates that will take these jobs. I am not here to judge, just to describe some of the dynamics around this profession. Reply

Interesting trend, that some coaches who specialised on physical training, some who never played volleyball on top level, became pretty successful volleyball coaches. It can be observed in some menś and women teams. It reflects a situation that volleyball has become a very physical sport. Even the world champion country, which in past had taught others, needs coaches from abroad who come into this category. Reply
