Chaumont took care of an interesting start of the 2019/20 French Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.



Chaumont took a little revenge on Tours for losing the play-off final last season and outclassed them at home in Round 1 of the 2019/20 Ligue A regular season 3-0 (25-20, 27-25, 25-20). Thus, Chaumont spoiled the coaching debut of Hubert Henno, who took over the bench Tours after finishing his memorable professional playing career. The winning side was led by Julien Winkelmuller (18 points), while Cameroonian Nathan Wounenbaina scored 11 for Tours.

The powerhouse Paris was beaten by Nantes Rezé at home in their first match upon return to the top division from which they were expelled due to financial irregularities: 3-2 (22-25, 25-23, 23-25, 25-21, 16-14). The team from the French capital had no solution for Slovak opposite hitter Peter Michalovič (31 points). The Dutch Robin Overbeeke (26 points) and Estonian Ardo Kreek (7 kill blocks) were the most prominent figures in Paris.
