Estonia

Profile

As many other Estonian top players, Renee started playing more serious when attending Audentes Sports Gymnasium in Tallinn where he became best friends with Robert Täht. His first professional club was near his home in Pärnu VC (2010-2012), after that he moved to Bigbank Tartu and stayed there until 2014. Together with Täht, they led Bigbank to many titles.

After two successful seasons in Tartu he flew to the top league and started to play in Italy in Altotevere Citta di Castello (2014-2015). Then from 2015-2017 Teppan played for Austria´s best team Hypo Tirol Innsbruck and then moved back to Italy to play for one of the best clubs in the world – Trentino (2017-2018). The season after that the opposite moved to Poland with PGE Skra Bełchatów (2018-2019) and then spent the season after that in France’s top league with Stade Poitevin Poitiers (2019-2020). From here Teppan had a short period in Belgium´s Noliko Maaseik in 2020 before returning to Estonia to Selver Tallinn to gain his strengths after some injuries.

“I´m really excited to play at home in front of our great fans. It´s a big challenge for the whole country to have EuroVolley2021 tournament in Tallinn – never before has this happened for any other big sports in Estonia.”
