Spillfest 2018

Jeudi 10 mai a eu lieu la traditionnelle “Spillfest” organisée par le COSL.
La FSL était présente avec son stand et de nombreuses personnes ont pu découvrir notre sport et poser beaucoup de questions. Cet événement montre que notre sport a pris la bonne direction et devient de plus en plus populaire.

Un grand merci à Daniela qui a très professionellement organisé notre stand.
Ainsi qu’à Christian Maroldt et son équipe pour l’installation et la désinstallation d’un court de squash.

Je voudrais aussi remercier les personnes suivantes qui se sont rendus disponible durant cette journée: Sandra Denis, Jean-Claude Schmidt, Jim Riewer, Chris Weare, Filip Madaric, Lia Pereira et Eric Pécheur.

European U15 & U17 Junior SquashTeam Championships

The Luxembourg National Junior Teams U15 and U17 travelled to Malmo, Sweden for the European Team Championships U15/U17.
The Team Managers were Jordi Ruiz-Kaiser and Céline Ancelet-David, with the National Coach Mark Andrew Burke rounding out the management of the team.
The trip was very easy, flight to Copenhagen and then a train ride to Malmo (over the bridge between Denmark and Sweden) – where a short walk to the hotel was all that was needed to find our accommodation.

Team Luxembourg achieved 19th Place in both U15 and U17. Great result for a fast-developing country!

U15 TEAM: Amir Samimi, Matéo David, Raphael Magron, Maya Darlington, Lydie Wykes-Tempelman
U17 TEAM: Corey McMahon, Jordi Ruiz-Kaiser, Maria Ruiz-Kaiser.
