Indonesian Women’s Volleyball Proliga will be stronger by a U.S. player and also a big name of Asian volleyball this year, Hayley Spelman.


 

Stanford University graduate will sign for Gresik Petrokimia, five-time Indonesian vice-champions, after finishing season in the Philippines Superliga playoff semifinal with F2 Logistics Cargo Movers.

Interestingly, a former U.S. Junior Women’s National Team member Spelman (gold medalist at the 2008 NORCECA Championship in Mexico), will come to Indionesia at the second attempt since her transfer to Bekasi BVN failed due to administrative constraints, last season

Spelman is a 25-year-old all-round player, predominantly playing as opposite hitter.

POL W: Malgorzata Skorupa continues career in LKS Commercecon Lodz

She played for Atom Trefl Sopot (not Gdańsk). And Atom Trefl doesn't exist anymore. So she had to leave :) Reply

Fans, which volleyball rules you would change if you were in charge?

Re: @Axe in basketball it is quite easy to have a rather small off-bounds space, like 3 meters must be enough, because when the ball is out of bounds it is out of play. In volleyball it's not the case and if you watch volleyball alot you can see that despite the quite large space around the field, players are still getting hold back by commercial panels, sometimes directly behind it tables with people doing a job which is involved by the game. And it's not like lots of people can enjoy that same experience only a few hundreds of people maybe on the the first few front-rows and not the other thousands of people present there.
If the empty space between playing court and 'obstacles' will be enlarged then players might be more motivated to chase off-bound balls and save alot (almost) dozens more than that they mostly can do today. The seats of the audience don't even need to be further away from the playing field, just those commercial panels and benches with working people behind them pushed all the way back to the walls between the court and the seats. If you look at football (soccer if you're American) there is the audience even further away from the playing field even though it is the case that a ball out of bounds equals out of play too. There you never seem to have a decline of popularity of the game.
