The 11th-placed side in the 2018/19 Italian Women’s Volleyball Championship Lardini Filottrano remained without a player with whom it signed the contract for the next season.

 

Filottrano published that the U.S. player Paige Tapp has informed the club that she was not able to commit to sporting experience away from home country for personal reasons.

As a 24-year-old middle blocker said to Filottrano management, she wants to move away from playing professional Volleyball. The sudden decision of Paige Tapp, that came a few days before the start of the preparations for the new season, will force Filottrano to intervene on the market that is about to close.

Paige Tapp has been playing professionally for only three years. She came to Filottrano from Allianz MTV Stuttgart with whom she won the German Championship last season. With the U.S. National Team, she won the gold medal in the Pan American Cup two times as well as in the NORCECA Champions Cup, a week ago.

Her twin sister Hanna Tapp is also a professional Volleyball player anda member of the U.S. National Team. Next season, she will defend the colors of the Brazilian top division newcomers Flamengo.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
