The pool phase is set to start in less than a month. Today, Round 1 of the Women’s Qualifiers saw action in Czechia. In a Pool 2 clash in Brno, CS Volley Alba Blaj overcame CV Gran Canaria, clinching a victory in straight sets (25-23, 25-16, 25-18). Isisdora Kockarevic stood out, scoring 19 points, while Anneclaire ter Brugge contributed 15 for the victors. Tomorrow, CV Gran Canaria is slated to face Kralovo Pole Brno.
