Speedball Chekka defended the Lebanese Men’s Volleyball Championship title.

 

The top seed Speedball Chekka, who suffered only one defeat overall in the 2018/19 Alfa Lebanese Men’s Volleyball Championship (19-1 in the regular season and 5-0 in the playoffs), became the country’s titleholders for the third year in a row.  

Speedball Chekka swept the final series with No.2 seed Tannourine by a 3-0, winning Game 3 in front of 4,000 spectators at home ground in Hamat in straight sets, partially 25-16, 25-19 and 25-21.

Hiring Serbian opposite hitter Dušan Petković for the playoffs turned to a jackpot for Speedball Chekka as the best scorer of the Italian Championship this season dominated the finals, scoring 23 points (six aces) in a decisive match for the title. His compatriot Aleksandar Blagojević top-scored for Tannourine with 10 points.

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply

WC 2019 W: Netherlands surprisingly sweep Brazil on Balkestein’s birthday, China wreck Russia

I don't like the comment that Balkestein-Grothues underperformed! We all know she is there to receive and defend. As you said: 0 aces for Brazil, so she did a great job! Aswell did Schoot, who was almost perfect in receive and defence! Reply
