The ITF members countries and responsables gathered, for the second year in a row through the Zoom platform, for the General Assembly 2021 to take some important decisions, to get an update, to listen to what happened in 2021 and to get a view on the plans for 2022. Also GrandMaster Frank Vanberghen and Master Annick Van Driessche were present, as resp. chairman of the ITF Audit, Risk & Compliance Committee and as ITF Board Member, but also as representants of ITF-Belgium.

European Championships 2021

Due to the pandemic the EC 2020 had to be cancelled and also the 2021 edition, which had to take place in April, was postponed. It was insecure if this year the EC could still be organised, but at last the organisation received the green light for the end of November. It will be an edition with a lot of measures and precautions, and without audience, but still everyone is happy to be able to compete again.

The national coaches never stopped working with the candidates for the national team and found ways and alternatives to keep the potential team members busy and motivated. This resulted in a rather big 2021 team: see team members here.

The coaches: Master Virginia Dionisi, Andreea Musca, Erik Van Hoeck, Hans Van Lierde and Nicolas Taylor. Officials: GrandMaster Frank Vanbeghen and Master Annick Van Driessche. We’re awaiting feedback on the selection of the umpires, Benito Martinez is candidate to be one of the referees at the tournament.

Best of luck to all!
