I always liked Montreux, it was a nice atmosphere and a good start into NT season, always a chance to discover new players etc. I hope it will resurrect at some point
Really sad indeed. It’s not too surprising given the scheduling issues (especially in Olympic years) and also the state of the gym... Its facilities aren’t the best, the ceiling is too low for the level of volleyball, and it was often unbearably hot in May/June.
BUT in its own way it was also magic... A nice start to the international season, a relaxed atmosphere (players and fans both loved it) and usually the chance to see the next generation (and for many players, their first international match). Oh and Montreux itself is a nice city. I will miss it a lot.
