Lang Ping's return is of important significance, particularly in the current market downturn of Chinese volleyball. Although she doesn’t coach the national women's volleyball team, she will play a key role in promoting the professionalism of Chinese volleyball.
      Evergrande Women's Volleyball Club was incorporated by Evergrande Real Estate Group with 20 million yuan. As the first China’s professional volleyball club, it operates in full accordance with the mode of the enterprise. It comprises a series of sound and scientific organizations such as an office, an administrative department, an operation and development department, a member department, a financial department and a department of legal affairs, creating the first “new mode” of a self-financing, self-survival and self-development volleyball club in China. Evergrande Volleyball Club has "recruited" a lot of women's volleyball elite across China, most of whom once worked for the “state” volleyball team, so its team is very strong. Last May, Evergrande Women’s Volleyball Club defeated Guangdong Women's Volleyball Team with a score of 3 versus 2. As the first commercially operating team in China, the operation mode of Evergrande Women’s Volleyball Club has created a pioneering mode of a purely professional Chinese volleyball club, which has been strongly supported by China Volleyball Association.
