For the second consecutive year, the French men’s volleyball star Earvin Ngapeth gathered some of the best players in the world at Ngapeth Invitational - a tournament on the beach of Saint-Jean-de-Monts.

 

Around 300 participants, including children, amateur players, and several world volleyball stars came to the 3x3 tournament that Earvin Ngapeth organized for two days on the wide beach of Saint-Jean-de-Monts.

France national team superstar organized the event for the second year in a row in order to allow ordinary people who love playing volleyball, regardless of their level, to be able to compete with the elite of the world volleyball.

 

And just like last year, many of his friends who play volleyball professionally, decided to show up on Saint-Jean-de-Monts beach and get involved in the exhibition, such as the 2016 Rio Olympics winner Bruno Rezende „Bruninho“, Nimir Abdel-Aziz, Uroš Kovačević, Simon Hirsch, three of his France NT teammates - Kévin Le Roux, Jean Patry and Jonas Aguenier...

Ngapeth even announced a contest for the best performance of his trademark move – a backward spike.

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

WC 2019 W: Brazil beat weakened team of Serbia in thriller, China win Asian derby

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(
