HistoryEdit

 
The club in 1938

The land that would become the first location of Minas Tênis Clube (currently Minas I) was originally assigned to become a zoo at Belo Horizonte's original urban plan, from the 1890s. By the beginning of the 1930s the urban growth surrounded the land with residential areas. In addition, it was very close to the Palácio da Liberdade, by then the official residence of the governor of Minas Gerais state. Thus the plan for a zoo raised environmental and hygiene concerns among the locals and the top officers of the state administration. Moreover, at the time the city had few entertainment and sports facilities. The then major Otacílio Negrão de Lima [pt], aware of this gap, demonstrated the interest to establish a sports center to replace the original project of a zoo.

Concurrently, prominent people from the high society in Belo Horizonte planned to found a big sport club to promote the practice of sports in the city. Necésio Tavares was the leader of this movement. He had previously created a volleyball team with his own name, and started the movement to get funding and supporting to found a club named Serra. The then 23-year-old named Waldomiro Salles Pereira, whom had the intention to found a club for the practice of tennis, get to know about Necésio's initiative, and approaches him to join forces, and to found a unique new club. Together, they develop the concept of the Serra Tennis Clube.

The group, knowing the intention of the major to promote the sports in the city, asked him to donate the land to the foundation of the new club. The major agrees with the condition that the name should be changed to Minas Tênis Clube, and that the club's first president should be appointed by the then governor of the state, Benedito Valadares [pt]. All the interests were aligned, and the official act of the club's establishment was signed on November 15, 1935, in the headquarters of the Automobile Club of Minas Gerais [pt]. At the occasion, Necésio Tavares was appointed as the club's first president.

Minas IEdit

The Minas I complex occupies an area larger than 31,000 m² (being 71,000 m² constructed)[2] in the Lourdes [pt] neighbourhood. The complex is composed by the Juscelino Kubitschek Arena, the Aquatic Park and the Sports square.

Originally, the headquarters was the only one from the club, thus a synonym of the club's name. However, since the opening of Minas II, it was naturally re-branded as Minas I (Minas One) to avoid ambiguity.

Minas IIEdit

The Minas II complex occupies an area larger than 34,000 m²[3] in Serra neighbourhood [pt]. It is composed by several sports courts, swimming pools, and the main building, which has administration facilities, and ballroom for events. The name of Minas II ("Minas Two") emerged as a natural choice since the inception, and remains until today. Moreover, caused the original headquarters to become known as Minas I ("Minas One").

In the early 80's, Minas Tênis Clube was already established as the most popular and traditional club in Belo Horizonte, and there was a high demand for its expansion. In 1982, it puts the cornerstone for the second headquarter of the club. The sports facilities were inaugurated in December 1984. In 1985, it was started the constructions of the main building, which was concluded in 1986.

Due to its large size, Minas II has been for long time the chosen venue for large events from the club. This includes the annual June Festival, but also big music concerts and sports tournaments.

The Minas Tênis Country Clube is located in Taquaril neighborhood and occupies a total area of 285.750 m², being 148 mil m² of it preserved native vegetation.

In 2000 it was incorporated by Minas, creating the Minas Tênis Country Clube. The previous members from the Country Club became automatically members from Minas Tênis Clube, thus gaining access to the other facilities.

HistoryEdit

In both semifinals, the team, led by the center Murilo Becker and the point guard Facundo Sucatzky, was defeated by Brasília. In the 2009–10 NBB season, Minas showed the point guard Raul Togni Neto, better known as Raulzinho. Neto was chosen the NBB Revelation Player and then moved to the Spanish team Lagun Aro. In the 2011–12 NBB season, Minas made a very bad campaign, finishing in thirteenth place and getting out of the playoffs. For the following season the managers made a great renovation of the cast, hiring young players.

The original Fiat/Minas eraEdit

In the decade of 1980 the volleyball gained major attendance in Brazil. The first national professional championship was organized in 1981. Also, the decade was the era of so-called "silver generation", in a reference to the team that won the silver medal in men's volleyball[17] in the Olympic games of Los Angeles. The team, at time sponsored by the Italian car manufactured Fiat, was the major power of the Brazilian volleyball. The team led by the Korean coach Young Wan Sohn won three titles in a row. At that time it created a major rivalry with two other teams from São Paulo state: Banespa and Pirelli.

The Telemig Celular/Vivo eraEdit

During the 1990s the team had major success, winning three titles in a row. The team was named after Telemig Celular, a former mobile carrier. It was acquired by Vivo, which continued the sponsorship until today.

The women's volleyball team plays at the Brazilian Superleague and the Minas Gerais state league. By 2020 it disputed under the name Itambé/Minas.

HistoryEdit

The early yearsEdit

Volleyball has been practiced in Minas since its opening, in 1937.

L'aqua di Fiori eraEdit

During the early 1990s, Minas was one of the most successful teams in Brazil. The team was second place in the 1991-92, and won the 1992-93 Brazilian League. The main players were Hilma, Ana Paula, Leila and Ana Flávia, whom also played for the Brazil women's national volleyball team.

The MRV eraEdit

From late 1990s until the season 2010/2011 the team played with the name MRV/Minas. During this period the team had noticeable performance, winning its second Brazilian Superleague championship, and also being runner-up twice.

Usiminas eraEdit

During the seasons 2011/2012 and 2012/2013 the team played under the name Usiminas/Minas. The team achieved fourth and seventh positions, respectively, in the Brazilian Superliga.

Present daysEdit

In April 2013 Usiminas announced that it would not renew the partnership. The team did not signed with any other sponsor and will play the season 2013/2014 without sponsorship, using the club's original name. In the beginning of 2014 the team signed the contract, and changed its commercial name to Decisão Engenharia/Minas. For the season 2014/2015 the team started playing under the name Camponesa/Minas. After a poor start to the season, losing the first six matches, the team signed olympic champion wing-spiker Jaqueline Carvalho, who was a free agent after missing the entire previous season due to her pregnancy, led by her, the team quickly turned its fortunes around, finishing 5th in the regular season and making to the semifinals, where they lost to Rexona-Ades. In 2015-16, despite Jaqueline's departure to SESI-SP, the team had its best season since the MRV years, finishing 3rd in the regular season, once again losing in the semifinals, this time to intrastate rival Dentil/Praia Clube.

For the 2016-17 season, the team signed american opposite Destinee Hooker on a prove-it deal. Without her to start the season, however, the team was very inconsistent, sitting at a 3-4 record after the first 7 games. During that span, the team signed Jaqueline once again in the free agency, after she found herself without a team for months following the end of the 2015-16 season. Hooker finally debuted in a 3-2 win over Fluminense in the following game, Jaqueline debuted later during midseason. Anchored by Hooker, aided by Jaqueline and also counting on a breakout years from young players like wing-spiker Rosamaria and middle-blocker Mara, the team proceeded to win 12 of the 15 final games (including a 9-game win streak), finishing 4th in the final regular season standings. Once again, Minas found themselves defeated in the semifinals, in a thrilling 5-game series against Rexona-Sesc. Despite missing the first 7 games, Hooker finished as the 2nd highest scorer in the tournament with 404 points, beating teammate Rosamaria (who scored 403 herself) and only behind Vôlei Nestlé's Tandara Caixeta. Hooker also finished the tournament as the most efficient spiker, making the Superliga team of the year. Mara also made it, as she finished 3rd in blocks but was also the most efficient blocker of the tournament on a per play basis.
