Limited space for beautiful peaks

After playing our first match last week, we have now completed our second match, which also happened to be our first away game. Just like you cannot start preparing for Christmas early enough, we arrived at the hall in Saasveld well in time. However, the door was still locked, and the key had to be fetched first. This did not deter us from starting our own Christmas party; while we waited outside, the first notes of "All I Want for Christmas" filled the air. As we were changing inside, we added to our wish ... Read more

Sprint Race Oldenzaal Grand Prix 2023

Welcome to the race report of the first sprint race of this season. Despite being called a sprint race, this race also offered the opportunity to earn 5 points. The two teams that started on pole position were the always cheerful and best-dressed team of Harambee, known as Ferradrie, and the impressive courreurs from Eurospet in Oldenzaal. After filling up the engines with some high-octane fuel, the cars were ready to show us their F1-like pace as they headed to the opponents' circuit for the first time thi... Read more

Start of something new🧡💜

For the first time this season ladies 5 school musical had a match. That started with a nice dinner together at Esther’s house, after which we took the touristic route to the beautiful little town of Bentelo. After arriving, our hungover coach first wanted a cup of coffee before we changed. While enjoying the beautiful playlist of high school musical we prepared for our first match. We were hyped!!!!   Unfortunately we lost 3-1 but we had a really nice match together. Even the shitty floor could not ruin... Read more

First win for Harambee this season!!

Saturday we played our first match against Mintonette ladies 3. Really early in the morning we came to the spc. Unfortunately the ladies of Mintonette were less excited. We started to think they weren’t coming when they arrived at the court, so we started a little late. Nonetheless we started the game and won the set with 25-12.  Then the second set we won with 10-25. Kinda disappointing because we really wanted a beer from our amazing coaches.  We started to think the game would be an easy win. But the... Read more

An Unfortunate Start to the Season

After starting the game with a tight victory in the first set, the team slowly lost its grip on the match. Although all the sets were within grasp, small errors mostly in terms of communication held us back from taking the first home game. The final set was nothing short of a disappointment, as we conceded our five point lead and lost the game without scoring another point. Moments of success in the game bring hope to the team as next saturday we are on the road, seeking our first official victory in the le... Read more

The "peaks" of the first match of the season

Now the new college year has started, we have as usual a new team and the start of a new season. After two weeks of thinking about a nice theme and creating a beautiful logo and movie, we could finally start with our first match of the year. Unfortunately, we were incomplete, but that didn't make it any less enjoyable. While being cheered from the bench, we did our best on the field to get the best possible result. This made it an exciting match with beautiful attacks, nasty balls but also a lukewarm fristi... Read more

Moffel and Viertjes first week back

Helloo dear fellow Moffel and Viertje fans!   The past week we were very excited for our first match with the new ladies four. We had a whole week of brainstorming for a theme, sneaking around to make the video, laugh about Tom flying around and somewhere in between playing some volleyball. On Saturday morning 9:45 it was time to gather for our first pre-match coffee, where as you would expect at that time, only half of the team was present :(. Luckily, we found some moffel and viertjes in the changing roo... Read more

Ferradrie motor faillure against Rivo Rijssen HS1

Many of you are aware that the new season has begun. For this first official race, notably in a higher formula, the Nevobo has qualified us against Rivo Rijssen Men's 1. The morning started like no other, with a cup of coffee and lunch in the stands, watching our beautiful teams from the association. Although it was early in the day, it quickly became clear that the starting lights would go out later than planned. Not due to passing rain, not due to fog, not due to a monitor lizard on the track, but due to ... Read more

Ken't Lose

In the first match of the season, Gents 10 had to face their greatest adversaries yet, Gents 9. We entered the game with hope in our hearts, excited to beKen the season. The game began wonderfully, with us winning our first set, gaining much confidence. But, in a tragic turn of events, we became too Kocky and lost 2 sets. Suddenly at our darkest moment, our coaches spoke with the substitution of a lifetime, and produced the greatest team to ever grace the earth. Kai's sets had perfect placement, Roel was hi...
