Teams from Russia, Belarus, Poland and Lithuania claim top honours in annual EEVZA Masters Tournament
News from the Zonal Associations

Vilnius, Lithuania, January 31, 2018. As many as 20 teams from seven countries – Belarus, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia and Ukraine – divided across six age groups came together to compete in the 2018 edition of the EEVZA Masters tournament, once again hosted by Lithuania.

Very close battles unfolded in the capital city of Lithuania, Vilnius. A total of nine women’s teams in the age groups from 35+ to 50+ joined the competition while 11 teams consisting of players aged 40+ to 60+ were competing for the top honours in the men’s tournament.

In the women's 35+ age group, three teams scored an equal number of points and only the set ratio could define the eventual winners – the MFV team from Moscow (Russia). The second place in this age group went to Daugavpils “DAMAS KLUBS” from Latvia, while Tallinn “PIRITA” from Estonia claimed the bronze medals.

A Russian team won gold in the 50+ age group as well, where they beat a Ukrainian side in the race for the top position. Lithuania’s LAIMA claimed the gold medals in the women’s age group 40+. 

“We are so proud that two Moscow-based women’s teams claimed gold medals in the tournament. We have to admit that it was extremely tough, as all the teams from Estonia, Latvia, Ukraine, and the hosting country were very competitive and hard to beat. The organisation of the tournament was impeccable and we had our best time staying here in Vilnius not only on the court, but off the court as well,” said one of the golden players from Moscow’s MFV team, Natalia Nikonionok.

The team of Polotsk from Belarus, who defeated Poland’s “Kaman volley” in their fight for the gold medal, won the men’s 40+ competition.

In the men's 45+ group, “Kaman volley” from Poland stood on top of the podium. They confidently beat “Siabry” Minsk of Belarus. Tinklas from Vilnius settled for third place.

In the men’s 60+ age group, “Siabry” Minsk (Belarus) were the eventual winners after edging “Deputats and Draugi” from Latvia’s capital, Riga. The bronze medals went to the Lithuanian team “Kuro aparatūra” from Vilnius.
