It is official: Zhu Ting, the captain of China Women’s Volleyball National Team, will join Tianjin in the new season.


 

“Next stop, Tianjin,” the MVP of the FIVB World Cup, that has just ended, posted.

 

Zhu’s whereabouts after parting ways with the Turkish powerhouse VakıfBank at the end of the last season attracted a lot of attention by media and fans. There was no doubt that the outside hitter will return to her home country but the name of the team in which she will play remained mystery up until recently. Tianjin, sponsored by the China Bohai Bank, also officially announced Zhu’s joining, saying that she will participate in the 2019/20 Chinese Super League and the 2019 FIVB Club World Championship with the club.

But, Tianjin’s fans got one more great news. A former U.S. National Team member Destinee Hooker also signed with the team from Northern China. Just like Zhu Ting, the opposite hitter also confirmed the transfer to Tianjin on social media.

“China here I come! I am looking forward to playing this season with China Bohai Bank Women’s Volleyball Team of Tianjin,” Hooker, who was wanted by the three teams in China, wrote.

Thus, Hooker will continue where she stopped in 2015. In the summer that year, she already penned the deal with this team but canceled the deal due to pregnancy. Last season, she competed with Osasco Voleibol Clube/Audax, Brazil.

For those who did not know, Tianjin is the most-titled Women’s side in China (11). Their last national title came in the 2017/18 season.

That would make the team very loaded since there are already 3 national team members on the team before even adding Zhu Ting and Ms. Hooker. I will be watching this Chinese league for sure.

QAT M: Milos Nikic moves to Al Rayyan SC

Great player, one of the main stars from the last Modena team who won the Italian Championship. Played in Italy, Russia, Poland, Turkey, Argentina. Due to ACL injury, he had to pause for 1 year. Good luck Milos, come back next season where you belong... Reply

Modena is on the roll. After Lube, they conquered Trentino and shown they will be formidable opponent in play-offs.
Something is wrong in Trentino land. Same players as last year but much worse results. Something will have to change soon, either results or coach... Reply

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

This was a terrific match to watch. High level players everywhere. Christenson is having the best year of his career in my opinion. Anderson was good early, Zaytzev was great late amd Holt was automatic in the middle.
Trentino needs a complete lineup soon. Russell was the best player this match for both teams. Whoever is going to get this him next year is going to be lucky.
Can't wait for these playoffs. Reply
