The Dutch senior beach handball teams still don’t have a medal from big competitions. They will give their best to improve the result. The men’s team will start the competition against Denmark, while the women’s team will play the first game against Germany.
Goalkeeper Thijs van de Mortel was one of the leaders on the court and one of the most experienced players. The Dutch will use every moment of neglect of their opponents to present themselves the best.
There were several great individuals in the women’s team until now. The best assistant at the last European Championship was Dutchman Kim Schuurbiers. There was also one of the best shooters, Eefke ter Sluis. Goalkeeper Jeanet Markvoort defended the penalty against Spain and her team went into the next phase of competition.
It will be interesting to see who will inherit Kim Schuurbiers‘s title of the best assistant and how the Dutch teams will play on the sandy courts at Jarun Lake.
