Italian Men’s volleyball champions Cucine Lube Civitanova defeated Division 2 side Monini Spoleto 3-0 (25-23, 25-19, 25-13) in front of 500 spectators at home ground in Eurosuole Forum in the first friendly match before the start of the 2017/18 season.



In the absence of French libero Jenia Grebennikov and U.S. duo Christenson – Sander, who have just finished playing the 2017 FIVB World Grand Champions Cup in Japan with their respective national teams, Osmany Juantorena topped Serie A1 title holders Lube with 16 points. Andrea Galliani made 10 for Spoleto.

Taiwan Excellence Latina (ex-Top Volley Latina) from Serie A1 won the 9th Memorial Nonno Gino in Sora by beating Division 2 club Caloni Agnelli Bergamo in straight sets, partially 25-19, 25-21, 25-16, in the finals. The Serbian Saša Starović scored 13 points for Latina.

In their first pre-season game, another Italian Serie A1 side Calzedonia Verona tied with the Japanese V-League club JT Thunders 2-2 (15-25, 13-25, 25-20, 25-16).
