Volleyball has experienced many changes of rules over the time. One of them is the number of contacts.

As Australian coach Mark Lebedew reminded us in his Blog, block touch was counted as the first touch until 1976. It means that the next touch after the block had to be a set up. Of course, as we all know, now block does not count as a first touch. Still, there are some players who sometimes like to play by the old rules and spike on a second hit, like Earvin Ngapeth. He has mastered this.

RUS M: Drzyzga parts ways with Lokomotiv after winning Russian championship

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
