Damage on the front right-wing

Last week, there was a real home grand prix at the UT sports complex. Despite it being another true home race, the race took place on a different circuit, much to the disappointment of our tactical gentlemen within the team due to the blinding lights.   This week, the combination of Alpine and Williams co-drivers managed to qualify in the 2nd position, allowing them to go head-to-head with the absolute crowd favorite on Saturday, Harambee Ferradrie. The stands slowly filled up, drums were brought out, voic... Read more

Almost the Kenback of the century

In our first match against non harambee opponents, we were PUMPED to show how hard we tried during practice. All our lives we've been so polite, it was time to strike back. As we stepped on the field, our more experienced opponents saw the man behind the tan, and immediatly knew where our skills would lack. We tried our absolute bestest in the first set, but we just couldn't feel the KENergy. In the second set, we just couldn't find our synergy. Disheartened, we were ready to accept defeat. Suddenly, in our... Read more

The first win with a Christmas touch!

On Friday evening, the third match of the season brought both volleyball and a touch of Christmas spirit. Although we thought we would have a cozy evening with the entire team, we unfortunately had to do it without a sick teammate. However, this didn't stop us from approaching the game with full energy. Before the match, we gave a card to the referee, not a yellow or red one, but a Christmas card. This was in honor of Week of the Referee. After wishing success to the opponents, the match began. The first se... Read more

Going for some golf with Markel-Up HS1🏌️

Last friday, the gents of Fore met up at the clubhouse for a good session of golfing against Markel-Up HS1. After a refreshing coffee at the clubhouse, we headed to the green. For the first hole, we beat Markel-Up to it with a hole in one ⛳. However, in the next three holes, Markel-Up beat us to it and the day ended with 1 hole for the gents of Fore and 3 holes for Markel-Up. It was not the result we hoped for, but it was a great day on the green. FORE!🏌️... Read more

Big losses in battle against Saasveldia

Last Saturday, we faced off against the mighty Saasveldia Heren 1, who are sitting pretty at the top of the leaderboard. Even though we had a couple of players from other teams helping us out, it was still a tough match. The scoreboard wasn't kind to us, with Saasveldia taking four straight sets, 12-25, 10-25, 13-25, and 19-25. However, there's a silver lining here. We're learning and improving with every game, and that's what keeps us motivated. Our next showdown is on Friday, October 13th, against Webton ... Read more

The disaster at Denekamp

On Friday the 29th we got our orders. We were to head out to Denekamp and destroy our enemy: TiMaX/DeVoKo Heren 1! Getting in our highly mobile vehicles we encountered very little resistance on our way there, and we managed to take the enemy by surprise. The Denekampers quickly recovered and surprised us by hammering us in the first two sets. In the third set we tasted blood, the old men were tired and we were ready to strike! We managed to get a huge lead (15-05). Our first set of the season got thrown in ... Read more

Catastrophic beachlanding against Eurosped Pollux

Our landing at the start of the season began with a match against Eurosped Pollux. We had to wait a bit longer than expected because all the teams playing before us decided that it was a nice idea to have a fifth set. In the first set, we started off fine being the first to reach 25 points! Our opponent had 24 points at the time and managed to beat us in this set. The 'beating us' part continued for the rest of the match, but we did come up with a great yell. After the match, we had a delightful teamdate wi... Read more

The second 4-0 for ladies 7!

Another week, another match. The team dinner was nice, and the vide was good, so we were ready to go! But our opponent was late, so we had to wait anxiously for their arrival. Six young girls walked onto the pitch, no coach, no substitutes. The six young girls turned out to be decent players as individuals, but were not very coherent as a team. When you put that against us, a well oiled machine, the score was already predetermined to turn out in our favour. The real match for us was the question, how many p... Read more

Possible rule change?

Dear Moffel and Viertje fans,   Already a bit more then a week ago, our second match took place. We had to go to Bentelo, of which Tom thought it was way too far, so he decided not to join. Luckily, Inez was able to step up and help us out. Therefore, we had a nice dinner, and went off to the match in time.... Just kidding, there has to be a bit of sensation in Moffel and Viertje, and therefore Julia decided to join a bit too late. The nice preparation turned into thinking of a backup line-up during the ri... Read more

First win of the season

Harambee HS 2 VS Eurosped Pollux HS 1        3-1      25-18, 22-25, 25-15, 25-13 As our oponents were placed similarly to us in the league, this was an important match for us to establish our position in our pool. From the beggining we felt confident that we could take the fight to them, rather than have to respond to their performance. Keeping energies high throughout the match, led us to conquering our first victory. In the last two sets we took complete control over the match and left Eurosped Pol... Read more
