  • Is a mix from the "oldies" and some youngsters like Robin de Kruyf, Sharon Zuidema,Anne Buys , who are playing in Young Holland. Some players had to do some other things this summer,like Elke, who is gonna marry Richard Schuil in June.
    I like the mix and was surprised by some names like Myrthe Schoot,she's libero from Martinus and a good player, but we have already Jip and Elke. I'm fan of Nikki Hoevenaars, who is the second setter in Martinus, because she's young,talented and tall.I think she can be grown to be a really good setter.

  • !!HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!!!!!!

    Flier Stam Wijnhoven :heart:


    Anyone can support a team that is winning - it takes no courage. But to
    stand behind a team to defend a team when it is down and really needs
    you, that takes a lot of courage.

  • Thanks so much Marieke! Great to have some Dutch news here.


    Watched them in Hong Kong (met them in real for the first time), they played very well and the mixture of older and younger players is very ideal. Especially glad to see that Ingrid and Franicen are still in the team and share their experience with the younger ones.


    Too bad I can't go and watch their games in Sep....

  • Marieke...do you know if Meijners will have some chance in National Team? I like her game!


    She will get her chance (i guess) if she want to play again. This summer she want to study and only train with national team. But she is really good and capable to play in NT
