The Turkish Women’s Volleyball Championship newcomers PTT will be very strong on the outside hitter’s position next season.

 

As the Division 2 champions in Turkey last season PTT announced, their roster for the top-flight debut will be reinforced with the Peruvian power Ángela Leyva. A 22-year-old player came from the Brazilian side Osasco Voleibol Clube/Audax, previously gathering awards for the MVP and Best Scorer (once each) and Best Outside Hitter (twice) in the Peruvian League. Internationally, Leyva was named South American Championship Best Outside Hitter twice and South American Club Championship Best Outside Hitter four times.

In addition to the Peruvian star, PTT hired several more newcomers for the 2019/20: opposite hitter Polen Ünver (ex-Uslupehlivan, Fenerbahçe Opet), middle blocker Janset Erkul (Beşiktaş), libero Ceren Önal (İlbank, Division 2), and outside hitter Ezgi Dağdelenler (Fenerbahçe Opet).

The setter Dolunay Çetinkaya, captain Ayşe Kılıç, middle blockers Selin Toy and Ceren Baysal, libero Burcu Genç, and head coach Bülent Karslıoğlu extended their contracts with PTT.

FRA W: RC Cannes sign outside hitter from Texas University

Cannes' roster for next season doesn't seem to be THAT focused on young talent IMO. Don't see a difference to other clubs in this regard. Their main problem seems to be the decreasing interest of people in the club, a lack of (new) supporters to attend their home matches. Reply
