Title contenders in the French Men’s volleyball Ligue A Masculine, Tours, hired a medical joker from domestic championship in the finish of the season.


A 23-year-old Finnish receiver Niklas Seppänen agreed terms with Tours, who still fight for the top seed in the French top division, which will become his third team in France.

Seppänen came in place of Australian Adam White, who suffered injury 12 days ago in the first leg of the 2017 CEV Cup quarter-finals against Czech side ČEZ Karlovarsko.

The Finnish player started the season in Narbonne, who will move to the Division 2, and will play in Tours as loaned player. He will not be able to help his new team in the CEV Cup because for that, according to the regulations, he would have had to arrive before the quarter-finals.

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
