The Dutch Cup has concluded, crowning Seesing Personeel Orion (men) and Sneek (women) as champions of the 2016/2017 season. The competition that was held in Zwolle was completely sold out weeks before it began.

For the men, Orion powered through Draisma Dynamo in a four set match 3-1, (25-23, 28-26, 19-25, 25-20). The cup win is the first for Orion since the 2013 season. In the first two sets, Orion made huge comebacks to go ahead in the match 2-0. Dynamo made things interesting by grabbing the third set; however, Orion pushed back in the four to claim the title with a final set score of 25-20.

With much of the country against Orion – 82 percent thinking Dynamo would prevail – they had a chip on their shoulders from the start of the match. The first two sets of the match were tough but Orion came out on top to take the 2-0 lead in the match. Dynamo showed some dominance coming into the third, making it a 2-1 match with a 25-19 third set win. Orion didn’t give up, coming out strong to finish the match 25-20, taking home the Dutch Cup title.

On the women’s side, Sneek claimed the title in a four set match, as well. The match served as revenge, as Sliedrecht took the title away from Sneek last season. In the final match between the two, Sneek pulled through 3-1, (30-28, 22-25, 25-13, 25-23) to take home their first title since 2014.

In the match, Sneek put tremendous service pressure on Sliedrecht giving them runs throughout the match. The first set was a tough battle for each team, as they continually went back and forth on points late, ending with Sneek claiming the first set 30-28. The second set went by the way of Sliedrecht who tied up the match at 1-1. From there Sneek never gave up, dominating in the third 25-23 and holding on in the fourth 25-23 to win their seventh cup.
