Men’s team of SAMEN.Lycurgus and Women’s Sliedrecht Sport became the winners of the 2019/20 Dutch Volleyball Cup.


SAMEN.Lycurgus has conquered the national volleyball cup (nationale beker) for the second time in history. The team from Groningen beat Draisma Dynamo in the final in Den Bosch by a 3-1 (22-25, 25-18, 28-26, 30-28).

Dynamo had a misfortune to lose their starting middle blocker Maikel van Zeist in the first set due to an ankle injury. Because of the injuries that occurred prior to the match, there were no more middle blockers in Dynamo registered for the encounter, so their head coach Redbad Strikwerda had to use outside hitter Wessel Blom and opposite hitter Nico Manenschijn on this position. In the league, Lycurgus already lost twice to Dynamo this season, so today’s victory healed most of their wounds.

Sliedrecht won swept sensational finalists Laudame Financials VCN, who compete in the second division (Topdivisie). VCN fought hard, pushing favorites deep into the overtime in the second set.

INTERVIEW: Hippe for WoV – “Live in the moment and make the best out of it”

'Until a year ago, Hippe was an indispensable member of the Germany National Team.' is not correct. She has not been playing for the national team since 2013. Reply

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
