The ITF e-World Championships, an alternative on the WC that were postponed to 2023, will take place between 4 and 19 September 2021 in the disciplines tul, teamtul and pre-arranged free sparring. The national coaches announced the selection on May 12th. ITF-Belgium is proud to announce the names of the team members:
Andreea Musca: tul IV-VI degree, teamtul, pre-arranged free sparring
Esther Meulemeester: tul III degree, teamtul
Amber Dellaert: teamtul
Laura Mouret: tul II degree, teamtul, pre-arranged free sparring

The national coaches organized, together with the ITF-Belgium Tournament & Umpire Committee, an online championship in tul for candidates for the national team. This will be one of the criteria, together with e.g. the online training sessions of the last couple of months, for selection for the e-World Championships (September) and the European Championships (hopefully to be organized in November).
Good luck to all participants! Many thanks to the coaches, the TUC and the umpires involved.
Congratulations to all of them. We’re sure they will do a great job.
Some positions are still vacant: coach and assistant-coach special techniques and coach power breaking. If you believe you could be an asset to the team, don’t hesitate to send your CV and motivational letter in within the next couple of weeks.
The coaches can start working towards the 2021 World and European Championships!
