chrison can you give source of that info about 87:85? Because that's just insane if it's true. 1979? that was in old system still!

As for Italian league You can find more and more curiosities like these on http://www.legavolley.it/Pillole.asp?Sezione=Gare&Tipo=TOPSCORE_SET .
Me too I wasn't aware of , for example, a 25-18 set who was 87 minutes long!! Or, just to say, another match where 39!! overall stuff blocks were scored!

@chrison:
14/05/03 Lamezia d. Cagliari (2nd division) : 48-46, 25-18, 23-25, 28-26
28/10/18 Harnes d. Rennes EC (3rd division) : 25-20, 28-26, 48-46
Spain 2004/2005 Malaga d. CV Andorra : 46-44
05/12/04 Modena d. Vibo Valentia : 26-24, 23-25, 26-24, 44-46, 17-15
08/11/13 Millsaps d. Birmingham (NCAA) : 25-15, 46-44, 23-25, 25-14
Japan 2008/2009 Sunbirds d. Toray Arrows : 45-43
26/01/19 Dextera d. Gargzdai (Lithuania, women) : 25-16, 26-24, 45-43
24/10/09 Manhattan d. Rider (NCAA) : 45-43, 26-24, 25-16
03/11/18 AS Illac d. Plessis-Robinson (2nd division) : 14-25, 18-25, 45-43, 25-14, 15-12
22/12/06 Novara d. Perugia (Supercup, women) : 25-12, 25-21, 45-43

That's all I have for teams who reached at least 45 points. For some of them I don't have the precise date and the exact score. I'm pretty disappointed that I found nothing on the 87-85 and 63-61 that you listed, I'm not sure those scores really happened.

@aaoffix: Not sure it exists. 1979 it was still the old system when you scored a point only when it you were serving. At time a set could go for an hour for only 25-23. A set like that with this system would mean probably more than 3 hours of play only for this set. It would be unreal.

@PhilipFreere By the way the German federation confirmed that it is a record for the championship, so the unknown 63-61 in this article can be removed, it is fake.

Turkish 1st League - Final Round (30.03.2022)

Akkuş Belediyespor vs. Hekimoğlu GCT Bursa: 26-28, 25-23, 25-21, 21-25, 42-40!

Also Akkuş Belediyespor won the next match against Hatayspor with another marathon 5th set, 33-31. Despite these two back-to-back hard-fought victories in just 24 hours, they failed to qualify to the top division.
