In men’s A1, matches were held in SEF and Rethymno. At the Faleri stadium, the matches of Panathinaikos attracted attention, especially the one against AO Tataula, which is giving everything to avoid going to the playoffs. The “greens” did not put Konstantinos Konstantinopoulos in the starting trio, Tataula had Gerasimos Hatzilygeroudis again on an excellent day and the game reached a double.

For the first time in its short history, Rethymno organized EFOEPA matches and this in itself was an important event. He competed, however, only with Greek athletes, it was not as strong and after the normal 4-1 set defeat by the pioneer Olympiakos, he was defeated by Elefsina with 4-2. The team of Attica was the winner of the day in the low places of the standings, because it also beat Chania and increased the hopes of avoiding relegation.

Olympiacos easily extended their unbeaten streak and remain favorites to retain the title.

Finally, in Athens, Pera, with two more victories, was back in fourth place in the ranking. In the inconclusive match against AEK, he got two wins from Pandasak Tanviriyavetsakul and 1 each from Stratos Damiani and Louis Reusso.

The latter in the most crucial game beat Alexandros Madesis with 3-2 sets. It is noteworthy that earlier, in the 4-1 over Ifitos Patras, he was defeated 3-0 in a set by Andreas Karabelias.
