Trefl Gdańsk reclaimed the trophy in the Polish men’s volleyball cup after three years!




Trefl Gdańsk won their second-ever Puchar Polski after sweeping PGE Skra Bełchatów in the finals at Hala Stulecia (Centennial Hall) in Wrocław by a 3-0.

Skra players struggled with service reception in the first set and Trefl took advantage of it to gain a 16-14 lead, which they did not drop until the end, finishing it in style by a 25-21.


In the second set, the problems with reception of Skra players got worsened and, despite they were close on the first TTO (7-8), Trefl escaped from them to three points up soon afterward (13-10). When the team coached by Andrea Anastasi got themselves a 15-11 lead it was clear in which direction this set will go – 25-22.

The third set was the most intense. Firstly, Trefl took a 4-1 lead which Skra converted into a 6-5. As the set was approaching its end, the players on both sides became more and more nervous. Ultimately, Bartosz Bednorz touched the net at 24-22 to set off a celebration on the court for Trefl players – 25-22.

Damian Schulz topped Trefl with 17 points and earned the MVP of the Final Four award. The Serbian Srećko Lisinac and Mariusz Wlazły scored 12 points each for Skra.
