“Dear international players of Tenniquoits
Brazil is once again very excited to be participating in their second Tenniquoits World Championships in Germany 2010. We are very grateful and appreciative for the Germans’ organisation and intense preparations to make this championship a very successful event. We would also like to thank Reinhard Plog for his continuous efforts in making Tenniquoits a worldwide successful sport. We look forward to meeting our fellow international players for what we’re sure will be a great sporting event. We wish good luck to all other countries and we look forward to what we’re sure, will be very exciting matches!
All the best from the Brazilian Delegation, Marilu Pekelman“
The ‘Sporthalle Oberwerth’ was examined carefully by the national team and their coach at the 40th German Team Championships in Koblenz on March 20th. Drive- and stairway to the gymnasium, which is situated on a hill, as well as the first view of the spacious foyer are very impressive. The parquet flooring with clear white court lines, a high ceiling and easily convertible grandstands for participants and spectators meet highest sporting WC-standards and add to a comfortable atmosphere. Thus the general conditions for very good sports at the second tenniqoits-WC are excellent. Have a look at a regional TVM-broadcast covering the German team championships with ‘live’ impressions of the ‘Sporthalle Oberwerth’.
The national anthems of South Africa, India and more recently of Poland have often been played at Tenniquoits competitions in Germany. But what do the national anthems of Belarus or Argentina sound like? What colours do you find in the Brazilian flag or where on earth is Nepal? Look for the answers and listen to the first bars with a full orchestra sound here. In Koblenz, “Nkosi Sikelel’i Africa”, “Jana Gana Mana”, “Mazurek Dąbrowskiego” as well as the other national anthems will of course be played completely.
In “Faszination Ringtennis” you can see Ringtennis action and emotional highlights of international tenniquoits events from 1976, 2004 and 2006. “Indien – ein Herbstmärchen / India – an autumn’s tale” shows all the fantastic experiences of the 1st World Cup in India 2006 in review.

Participants of the annual general meeting from 8 German Ringtennis provinces became acquainted with the WC accommodation at the beginning of January. Players and members of the delegations will feel at home in the renovated ‘Sportschule Oberwerth’.
