In the beginning of the year, Sunday November 29th was fixed as date for the Open Challenge Cup in Jambes. The national coaches would take this opportunity for their final decisions towards the selection of the national team 2021. During summertime the decision had to be taken to cancell this years Challenge Cup, due to the pandemic. So the coaches decided to organize a trial competition that same day, only open to candidates for the upcoming EC. However, the second wave of Covid-19 and the second lockdown decided otherwise.
However, the national coaches (Master Virginia Dionisi, Andreea Musca, Erik Van Hoeck, Hans Van Lierde and Nicolas Taylor) came up with an alternative. Sunday November 29th the candidates for the team were offered 3 Zoom sessions, in tul, sparring and power breaking. Many thanks for these sessions!
The Tournament & Umpire Committee has meetings on regular basis. Now gathering and having face-to-face meetings is not possible, the members of the committee are having these meetings through Zoom. Also in times of Covid-19 and during lockdown, the TUC is working hard for the members of ITF-Belgium.
