Sitting Volleyball Super 6

Japan

Nov. 13 - 18, 2019


The U.S. Women’s National Sitting Volleyball Team, 18-0 in 2019 and nine months from defending its Paralympic Games title next summer in Japan, will have an early chance to acclimate to conditions in Japan during the 2019 Nomura World Super 6 Tournament held Nov. 13-17 in Tokyo. The Super 6, normally a six-team round-robin event, has been reduced to four teams in 2019 with two teams pulling out prompting a double round-robin pool play.

The U.S. Women are ranked No. 1 in the world and are defending Paralympic Games champions from 2016. Russia ranks sixth in the World ParaVolley world rankings, mostly due to their absence from the 2016 Paralympic Games. Ukraine ranks fourth and Japan is 11th.
