  • Transfers update:

    Tauron - completed


    Budowlani - nothing new (maybe 1 OP and 1 L)


    Muszynianka - completed

    Pałac - completed


    Legionovia - completed


    Developres - need only 2 S (Kaczmar and Szczygieł ?( )


    KSZO - nothing new (they need 1 S, 2 OHs, maybe 1 or 2 MBs and maybe 1 L)


    ŁKS still claims that officially they ARE NOT in Orlen Liga so we still have to wait... 4 players are staying, 1 left and we don't know anything more


    Budowlani - similar situation like in ŁKS, 3 players left club and we don't know anything more

  • Łks and Budowlani should get the official invitations tomorrow. Budowlani wrote on facebook somethig like; stay tuned for something awesome.


    I dont think Kowalinska is going to play in club which doesnt pay money the players.

    I dont think Kowalinska is going to play in club which doesnt pay money the players.

    so possible options for her in Poland: Impel Wrocław (if not Konieczna), BKS Bielsko-Biała (if not Collar), ŁKS Łódź and Budowlani Toruń, if not then either 1st League or playing abroad :wavy:


    I wonder who'll play in Piła then :roll: can someone still really think that club is reliable ?(

  • Impel with new OP (only 1 S and MB has to be signed) and Developres with Setters (they probably completed line-up)
    moreover league has been officially widened :wavy:
    another change is in Play Offs, they will be played as two games, if there is a tie in points (like in CEV competitions, then Golden Set will be played :wavy:

  • Budowlani Torun are looking for new players and probably new coach. Local newspapers claim that it might be foreign coach. Chiappini? :D They want to hire good foreign players as well.


    Chemik Police didn't sign the contract with Grupa Azoty for another season. They are still negotiating the terms.

  • I'm so curious who will join to Budowlani Toruń and ŁKS :D


    6 teams completed rosters (Muszynianka, Tauron, Pałac, Developres, Legionovia and Impel), 2 are close to it (Budowlani Łódź and BKS), we don't know what's with 6 rest (Atom, PTPS, KSZO, Chemik - another negotiations with sponsor... + Budowlani and ŁKS)

  • Kszo Ostrowiec wants to renew with Piotrowska and Polak. This club will sign contracts with Magdalena Soter, Volha Pauliukouskaya, Joanna Ciesielska and Zuzanna Urbanska. Other players will leave the club.

    On which position does Ciesielska play ?( can't find anything on her... anyway IMHO they still need one more player - either S or OH, depends on which position this unknown girl plays ^^

  • Karolina Różycka goes most likely on maternity break.


    EDIT: Nicola Vettori probably as new coach of Budowlani Toruń. Does it mean that Wiktorowicz will stay in Bielsko-Biała ?(

  • Good news for Toruń! I knew it will be Chiappini or Vettori because they both watched 1st league finals between Toruń and Łódź. I won't be surprised if some players from Piła are going to move to Toruń. Sobczak, Skorupa, Leggs will probably leave Ptps.

  • Ptps Piła: Łukasz Przybylak and Piotr Sobolewski are the new coaches.
    Leggs, Konieczna, Pauliukouskaya, Skorupa and Wilk left the team.
    New players are: Emilia Szubert, Sylwia Kucharska, Żaneta Baran and Karolina Piśla. They are looking for new OH and MB.


    Speaking about Budowlani Torun, only 3 or 4 players will stay.

  • That's suprising how they manage to sign new contrast as they are not paying...

    Some players still believe that they'll receive salaries :lol: I wonder what'll do remaining 8 players from last season (Kwiatkowska, Sobczak, Babicz, Urban, Lewandowska, Kukulska, Stencel and Markiewicz). I expect Babicz to stay, but what with others ?( :D Szubert played here and she came back, interesting after prtoblems in Legionowo xD

  • If I see it right it looks like Piła will play with one libero and only 2 middle blockers? Or maybe they will hire some junior players.
    I've read that some players got their money but not everyone. There were rumors Anita Kwiatowska are going to take maternity break.
    Babicz might stay in Piła. I don't know what about other players. Lewandowska played in 3rd league before, and last year she was only server :D

  • Rosters update:


    Impel, Tauron, Muszynianka, Pałac, Legionovia, Developres - completed


    Budowlani Łódź, BKS - almost completed, both need 1-2 players

    Atom - nothing new
