Südafrikanischer Dankesbrief zur WM2010 kam gestern in Deutschland an:
30 August 2010
We have been back in South Africa for three weeks now and we have almost settled back into our normal routine…. or so I think! Returning from Germany (and this has been my 5th time) has always been one of the saddest and most difficult things to do and this time was no exception!
I would like to use this opportunity to say: Vielen, vielen Dank to many, many people: Mehr…
Welcome USA! – it’s North-America’s first-time ever participation in a tenniquoits WC. The American tenniquoits federation is going to send a delegation consisting of 9 members to Germany. Pakistan, that already took part four years ago, has also applied for Koblenz; the team’s participation, however, depends on their visas being granted. And Belarus has nominated some additional players.
Apart from the three official WC competitions and the five unofficial demonstration competitions there will be four attractive cultural and social events where all participants can meet, chat and celebrate. As everybody involved – like players, delegation members, helpers or supporters – will be completely occupied with sports, keeping fingers crossed or organizing for a whole week, these common moments will be particularly treasured. Host Germany has a lot to offer and doesn’t have to hide its light under a bushel in comparison to colourful India at the WC 2006.
Team Southafrica 2010
The first team to select their members were the ‘Proteas
’ on 20th
February. Team Coach Hein van der Lith (44) opted for six newcomers to form the South African
national team, among them the 16-year-old new single champion Lenize Potgieter. The two team captains Heleen Potgieter and Bertus le Roux as well as three other players took part in the 1st
World Cup in India. As part of their preparation for the upcoming 2nd
Wold Cup, Team South Africa have even announced their own physiotherapist.
