Red Card Mystery

Krekkers HS 1 vs Harambee HS 2   17-25   25-21   25-21   25-18   After a strong start we started to slow down after a strong middle player on the other side as well as frustrations with the arbitration. This game was full of mysteries, like how Henny was mysteriously awarded two red cards 😱. Among other things, the game continued to be fairly close despite our low spirits. We are hopeful that we can soon get back on that winning train once again. We hope to give you a good display this Friday at... Lees meer

⛩️ Heren Samurein fight first cup-match

On a rainy Wednesday evening, the brave samurai of Harambee Gents 1 gathered at the sports centre, joined by Alex, Nikolay and Vince. This time not for a regular training, but for the first cup match of the year. After an hour of driving over small country roads, Harambee arrived in Doesburg to play against Gents 1 of ACE. In the first set, ACE set off with a strong start, resulting in an equal score in the beginning of the set. Luckily, Harambee was able to improve the level of play. Big attacks brought t...

Bop to the top (of Overijssel)

On Thursday 02-11 during the big storm Ciaran we all had to gather to leave to den Ham. Which is far far away from Enschede. After a lovely dinner at Jara’s place with gnocchi from the airfryer, yes this hack works perfectly, we prepared ourselves for the long journey to the game. On the road we experienced some strong winds and a lot of branches everywhere but we made it! With only eight players and our two lovely coaches we had a small group today. And oh no our libero Martina was not there. So our midd... Lees meer

Another cozy Christmas weekend

On Friday 27 October, we again pulled out all the peaks to go out and shine a match. The atmosphere was right in with the taking of our team photo, which showed us all peaking. We certainly continued this in the match, as we won set after set (and yes, even the infamous 3rd set), ending with a 4-0 win, our first of the season! There were also certainly some not-so-high peaks in the match such as the crate of beer due to a serve that went under the net, almost two in fact, and some balls where the communicat... Lees meer

second home weekend

Last Friday we had our second home game of the season. We started with a lovely dinner, read pasta pesto, at Anouk's house. Luckily for us, this was close to the sports centre since the weather was shit. But this could not ruin our good mood. We could play for the first time in our shiny new shirts!! All the reason to make a nice picture again! As for the game itself, we had to play against the number one. They have never lost a set this season and already played 3 games. It looked to be a nice game. The fi... Lees meer

Our opponents will once again resemble Norris and Piastri, so we should be aware of some serious competition. Looking at their team picture though, their media department is definitely not from this decade.   Our team car is still missing its entire front-right wing (last seen in Indonesia) and some fast components are missing from the nose. Mr. Oei has been assigned to fix the wing problem. We have also procured the services of mr. Germanov, to assist him with that and mr..Luimes to adjust the front attac... Lees meer

Same Ken, New Beach

This weekend, it was once again time for us to Ken things up in our match vs Devoc Gents 3. This time, team Ken was looking different than usual. It felt like looking into a mirror, because Pablo Ken was playing opposite to his opposite position, he was now playing as 😱 diagonal 😱. Even more shocking was that one of our middle Kens, Quincy Ken, took a few steps to the left and was playing as an outside hitter. We entered the match with much Kenfidency, as our coach Timon Ken told us that our spry kne... Lees meer

The echoing victory

Yes, the 4th match of this season has been again. This match we played in beautiful (almost German) Langeveen. The beginning of the match was a great success, not only by volleyball but also by handball. Also some lovely balls were pumped into the opponent's field. There was no room for the referee or the spike on the Christmas tree (we unfortunately noticed this a few times with passes as well), but the minimal space off the court was compensated by their open center hole. The cozy Christmas atmosphere aft... Lees meer

A battle between the coaches

It’s Friday, theeeen it’s time for a match again! This time we had to play against Webton ladies 5. Since the match was in Hengelo, we could go by bike this time. Unfortunately, Swieber stole the good weather so when we arrived at the sports hall we were fully doorweekt and cold. This was also not the only thing that was taken by Swieber, he also took Sanne’s socks. That is not very nice of you Swieber! At the warming-up, we were not really intimidated by the opponent. So we started the first set with... Lees meer

One Step Back

Gemini HS 1 vs Harambee HS 2 3-1 25-19 22-25 25-18 25-11 Despite our victory last week, we had trouble maintaining our stride. Although we believe that the team continues to improve, we are firmly aware that we are fighting the clock to try and solidify our chemistry and consistency. When we have our stride and our heads in the right place, we are very successful. We found ourselves in many moments making consecutive mistakes. Quick Summary: Set 1: The set was quite competitive. Due to some silly mistakes t... Lees meer
