As we can see, the most interesting battle was between Aluprof and Budowlani. Match named as hit of the round, between Chemik and Atom was a disappointment. Atom in every set had opportunities to win it, but stopped playing after second technical time outs, losing in crucial moments many points. Other matches were easy wins for Muszynianka, Impel and Tauron. In my opinion Impel and Taurn looked the best in first games, but it’s a start of the season and many things can change.
