After winning the 2017 Men’s Volleyball CEV Cup, French side Tours Volley-Ball turned to making plans for the next season.

 

As we already wrote, Tours parted ways with German middle blocker Philip Collin who returned to his homeland. It did not take much for reigning CEV Cup champions to find his replacement.

As „L’Équipe“ reported, Tours agreed terms with Dutch Jasper Diefenbach from French Championship (Ligue A Masculine) rivals Nantes Rezé Métropole Volley. Diefenbach is one of the highlights in French league this season, becoming the best scorer in his position.

Tours also formalized the one-year contract extensions with Italian coach Giampaolo Medei and Canadian receiver Ryley Barnes.

WoV making list of suggestions on how to make volleyball rules clearer for the fans – Give us a hand!

1. Let coach go inside the court during period of no play ALWAYS
2. Let players speek freely with referee
3. Put fans closer to the court
4. Let teams' coaches discuss more close one to another
5. Make players warm up any place behind bench
6. Make space outside of 9x9 court smaller so players go often to save the ball into the fans
7. Change LED ads positions. Looks like players are untouchable...
Do you want more?;) Reply

Re: @Freeman that same problem counts for ball in/out, foot over/on the line and ball-touches. The problem is not the rule, it is the availability and the costprice of the technology to organize a challenge-system. Normally, as technology progresses, the challenge-system will become cheaper over time and more competitions on more levels will be able to afford it.
