Excellent news coming from beach volleyball, which still has some nice surprises at the end of the season. It is the entire arbitration sector that celebrates the thirty-year-old from Terni Dalila Villano who gained another promotion: «It was a unique experience, the result of so much commitment on and off the pitch, I am honored to have been able to represent the Italian refereeing class in the field of beach volleyball. All this was possible thanks to many people who believed in me and I am happy to have been able to repay all the trust shown in me by the national sector of the Italian volleyball federation ». The whistle, which has already directed the most prestigious events on the Italian territory, passed the course of aspiring international referees a few days ago in Baden (Austria) and was then designated as first referee during the final of the Future tournament of the Beach Pro Tour 2022 held on Saturday 27 August in Baden and which saw the 2-1 victory (18-21, 22-20, 20-18) of the Ukrainians Iryna and Inna Machno against the Chinese Zeng and Wang. An exceptional career for him, which has skipped all the stages and continues to amaze. The most sincere congratulations from the editorial staff of Pianeta Volley.
