After the international Skerbinjek memorial for volleyball players, which was held at the end of last week, Maribor volleyball fans can expect another quality tournament. From today until Sunday inclusive, there will be a women’s volleyball tournament organized by OK Nova KBM Branik in the Draš pod Pohorjem Sports Center. Vasas Obuda Budapesta, Železničarja Lajkovac and Volera Zürich will also play in it. The Vasas team is multiple Hungarian champions and the winner of the last edition of the Mevza Central European League, the Lajkovac team has been at the top of Serbian women’s volleyball in recent years, and the Volera Zürich team has played in the Champions League several times and was once even fourth.

For Maribor volleyball players, who started preparing for the season on August 16, the tournament will be one of the last tests before the start of the national championship. “Until the first match of the national championship, on October 5, the focus will be on playing and sharpening tactical ideas, as there have been changes in the playing staff. In the middle of last week, my teammates were joined by national team members, so I have twelve players available and training is much easier , as they were before. Austrian representative Anamaria Galić and Slovenian representative Mirta Velikonja Grbac left the team, we filled the gap with younger volleyball players. I am satisfied that Monika Potokar, Lorena Lorber Fijok and Urška Cikač remained in the club. It is an important trio at reception, around which we are building a team,” says the coach of Maribor’s bankers Bruno Najdic. The women from Maribor also played a few preparatory matches: “They confirmed that the preparations were good, that the game is better from match to match. Now the players face a new challenge and the tournament in Maribor will be a very demanding test for them in this part of the preparations. All three teams the quality of the players from abroad is better than ours, so it will be interesting to see how our players will compete with them. I want them to be as successful as possible and to show what I expect from them in the game; quality growth before the start of the competition a season in which, as always, we have high goals.”

Tournament schedule, today, at 4 p.m.: Lajkovac – Nova KBM Branik, at 7 p.m.: Vasas – Volero; tomorrow, at 4 p.m.: Volero – Lajkovac; at 7 p.m.: Nova KBM Branik – Vasas; on Sunday, at 3 p.m.: Lajkovac – Vasas; at 6 p.m.: Nova KBM Branik – Volero. (g)
