Hello volleyball friends! My name is Jouni Parkkali. I’m from Finland and my hometown is Maaninka. I have been married since 1976, and we have a daughter Hanni born -80 and a son Jesse, born -87. My education is in physical-education instruction.

Some of you may remember me from top volleyball in the 70’s and early 80’s. I played 11 years for Pieksämäki NMKY in Finland’s top league winning 7 championchip on a row. I played 271 games on the Finnish National team. In 1977-1978 I played in Istanbul (Eczacibasi) in Turkey’s. In 1980-1981 I played in Italy in Panini Modena and from 1983-1985 in Belluno (Damiani and Lozza) at the A-1 level. I finished my volleyball carrier as a coach in Switzerland in 1998. Please refer to my CV from here.

In 2000 I began working as a volleyball manager. There are currently about 25 players ( men + women) in our team. Andrea Solazzo takes care of women players. We gladly work with clubs and volleyball personnel who can assist our players in attaining a higher level. I’m looking for trustworthy people and clubs who take pride in fulfilling contract promises (salary, apartment, etc). Club’s culture as well as good coaching is also very important for us and my players.

We co-operate with many clubs and volleyball managers in Europe and worldwide.

My personal values are long term confidence, friendship and fairness.
