Calcit Kamnik Ljubljana are the winners of this year’s edition of the Slovenian Men’s volleyball Cup, taking the trophy in the tournament for the third time.

 

In the final showdown in the city of Kranj, Calcit made an epic comeback from 0-2 against national champions ACH Ljubljana to defend the Slovenian Cup trophy 18-25, 18-25, 25-17, 25-18, 15-13.

Ljubljana were favorites in the finals for many reasons. They beat Calcit already four times this season not allowing rivals to take a single set in the last three encounters. Also, Calcit had many problems with injured and ill players recently.

Nevertheless, Brazilian opposite Maxson Pereira and receiver Andrej Štembergar-Zupan scored 18 points each for Calcit. A receiver Žiga Štern scored 15 for Ljubljana.

 

A day earlier, Nova KBM Branik Maribor won back-to-back trophy in Women’s Cup of Slovenia after prevailing in a marathon final match versus Calcit Kamnik Ljubljana, also in Kranj, 3-2 (25-21, 21-25, 25-23, 27-29, 15-7).

It was the 16th trophy for Branik in the tournament to which they were led by a 21-year-old opposite Iza Mlakar, who highlighted with 35 points! Serbian opposite Olivera Kostić collected 23 for Calcit.

FIVB are testing new rules at WCH U23: Serve (VIDEO)

I honestly don't see the use of changing every time the rules. People at some point don't know anymore what the exact rules are, and at this time I'm talking about player, coaches, ... , people with much affection for the sport. People that don't know the sport, can't follow at all this evolution of rules. In consequence they lose interest in the sport and stop following it.

Also if this rule would apply, this will for many youth teams an issue to learn this kind of services, as they don't have the room behind the court as the professional player to learn this kind of service without landing in the court. I know courts where there's only 1 meter behind the service lines.

If we want the game to become more spectacular again, we should simply raise the hight of the net. People are becomming taller and taller and jumping higher and higher, the logical evolution would be to raise the net hight.

IT will impact the service presure and the attack presure, resulting in longer rally's.

Thanks just my personal opinion.

I wonder who has the same idea? Reply
