My apologies for the lack on updates over the last couple of months. The website is now up to date again with all results and statistics.
So far both, our men and women team, are competing as expected looking at the results.
Looking at how we play the men team showed great improvements over the last 4-5 games which are a result of the committment from each player to the team by attending games and especially attending almost every training. The team started to play as a team and that shows specifically in attack where the team is capable of out-playing the oppsoite defence. Unfortuntely the team is still to inconsistent with the efforts and energy given but that was expected with a high turnover of players from last year to this year and with the two most experienced players still ahvent played any game this season.
For the women team the situation is a bit different due to challenges of some girls to attend the trainings due to other committments and therefore chances are missed to improve the team game. But we have picked up a few new players who show great talent and determination on the court. Moving forward I hope we will pick up a few new players through the school league which will enable a higher turnout at trainings and therefore a faster improvement pace of the team.
