Montreux Volley Masters 2018

  • Why is a team such as Cameroon invited here in this edition? Seeing the participants it doesn't make sense at all. Perhaps just to make the host team a little bit better? LOL

    Well, it makes a lot of sense for me... I guess they are just trying to be inclusive, because African teams will never be competitive enough if they keep playing only local games!

  • they might be very competitive against the hosts. if you really think about it, the whole tournament (and the arena) doesn’t make a lot of sense.

    He he thanks ossubtus, you just remind me about the arena's peculiarity for volleyball games, just remember not to hit the ball too high or you'll be faulted when it touches the ceiling :-) this arena might be just fine during its early years, and was still new over three decades ago, the world might have not been as developed as its current form entering the 21st century. I'm just smiling every time I see a player is stunned and looks over her head to the ceiling when a fault is called out due to the ball touches it :-) well, just enjoy its historical status thus it is called “classic”. A relaxing, fun event for players enjoying the beautiful city/town, as well as the local folks watching the world teams playing there, and netizens for watching from distant :-)


    mdacs , yeah okay, I can see the inclusiveness argument, let the Cameroon team have the rare, good drills there :)

  • mostly it's not that any players hits the ball high, it's the digs that go up to the ceiling...


    if CMR faced SWI, they might get a victory. they surprised a lot of people in the WCh and olympics, they have a really good MB, at least she was a big blocker (fotso?). also the lefty OPP is very good (nana?).
