Together again

Virtus Segafredo Bologna announces the contract renewal with Beatrice Barberis, Valeria Battisodo and Elisabetta Tassinari.

Average of 8 points and 4.3 rebounds per game for Beatrice Barberis in the season that just ended, with 18 points in her best game against Lucca. Her contribution in the playoffs was also important, where she raised the level of her performance considerably, especially in the quarterfinals against Sesto San Giovanni. These are the words of the black-and-white forward: “First of all, I’d like to thank the club for the trust they showed in me and for giving me the opportunity to be part of a team that, besides competing to win, will also participate in the Eurocup. Last year we had a great year and this year we want to raise the bar again. I’m proud and excited to be part of this project. I can’t wait to start again.”

Experience and playmaking for Valeria Battisodo, who finished the 20/21 season with 6.8 points and 3.5 assists per game. Long among the best players in the league in terms of assists, Battisodo led Segafredo to the championship semifinals. These are the words of the point guard: “I’m very happy and proud to be part of this historic club for another year, where I found professional and passionate people and managers. Last year was important in terms of results and personally I had a great time with the historical group of Italians who welcomed me from the first day and made me feel like one of them. All this will be fundamental also next year with the new recruits to achieve the ambitious goals that Virtus Segafredo Bologna has set itself. It will be very exciting for me to come back to fight for the Scudetto and to play in such an important competition as the Eurocup. I can’t wait to start and give my contribution.”

Third season with Segafredo for captain Elisabetta Tassinari, who finished the season with an average of 6.3 points per game. These are the words of the guard: “It’s a renewal that makes me happy and proud. More than anything else, I’d like to thank Doctor Zanetti and the Club for the opportunity given to me once again. Playing in such an ambitious team will be a stimulus and a responsibility. I can’t wait to start and to find the Segafredo Arena full of our fans.”
