I just came back from the last training camp of the German national ringtennis team before the 2014 World Cup in South Africa, which has been held in Mannheim. We’ve had fun, we’ve worked hard, we’ve played a lot of ringtennis and I’m sure we’re well prepared for the big event in March.
One of my personal highlights of the weekend was the fact that for the second time after 2010 I’ve been chosen as the team captain by my fellow male teammates. This time, I’ll do the job along with Timo Hufnagel as the co-captain. Moreover, the women’s team elected Michaela Güthling as their captain. Congratulations! 🙂
Special thanks go to our coaches: Thomas Bleile, Jürgen Öttel and Christian Herzog. They’ve worked at least as hard as their players and have done a tremendous job so far. In my opinion you’ve formed a fantastic team and we’ll do everything in our power to reward you for your efforts. Thanks also go to our team manager Silke von Aschwege, who spares no efforts as well.
There’s only one event left before the World Cup: the final of the German national league, which will be held in Diedenbergen on 8th of March.
South Africa, prepare for a highly motivated and talented German team! Only 43 days to go!
