While digging up my old VHS tapes to convert to digital I came across an old scouting tape I made of Dutch master (witty, eh!) setter Peter Blange. At the time I was looking at how setter’s decisions were influenced by their position on the court. I don’t know if Data Video existed at that time, but if it did I didn’t use it. I had a friend (thanks, Clarky, wherever you are) who had an Apple editing suite and did all the edits by hand. It took forever!! If I had my time again, I would have a longer lead in time to each set to watch his movement better.
The matches are semi final and final of the 1997 European Championships played in Eindhoven.
