The 2018/19 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Championship runners-up Dentil/Praia Clube announced the return of three players to the club.

 

The current vice-champions of Superliga made the hiring of three former players official via their social media channels.

The veteran middle blocker Walewska Oliveira, the 2008 Beijing Olympics winner with Brazil national team, returns to the Uberlândia team after a season in Osasco Voleibol Clube/Audax. A 39-year-old player was involved in winning the first-ever and, so far, the last championship title of Praia – in the 2017/18.

The middle blocker Angélica Malinverno, 10 years younger than Walewska, is the next returnee to Praia. She came from BRB/Brasília Vôlei.

The third returnee in Praia is a 31-year-old setter Cláudia Silva “Claudinha”, competing for Osasco Voleibol Clube/Audax last season.

A few days earlier, Praia announced three more signings: the opposite hitter Monique Pavão (SESC RJ), outside hitter Priscila Daroit “Pri Daroit” (Fluminense F.C.), and young setter Vivian Lima (Fluminense F.C.).

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
