FOUNDERS OF WHEELCHAIR TCHOUKBALL
WE PRESENT TCHOUKBALL - THE ULTIMATE TEAM SPORT
Anna has been playing tchoukball for around ten years having started in 2008 after her best friend Max Ciperle invited her to a tchoukball camp in Lignano – she immediately fell in love with the sport and how it’s a sport based around "fair play, family and passion".
This week, we turn our attention towards a German team in ASC Weimar and we speak to their German international defender: Adele Anhalt, 16, who will be one of the youngest players at the EWC in Radevormwald.
Frenchman Sylvain Flizot first caught a tchoukball five years ago when he joined Tchoukball Club Comtois in Eastern France and has since taken the club to new heights.
Our second player from the Czech club of Limeta Lomnice and Popelkou is right-handed player, Dominik Šimůnek.
His tchoukball foundations were built at Limeta eight seasons ago in 2011 and he’s remained with the club ever since. He’s previously played beach tchoukball but decided to take it more seriously after he gave up athletics.
This week, we hear from Jitka Šimůnková, the right-handed defender representing Limeta Lomnice and Popelkou at this year’s EWC in Radevormwald.
Šimůnková, 29, started playing tchoukball at the 2008 Czech Beach Championships and has since appeared in the Czech national team at the World Championship in Ferrara (2011), two European Championships in 2014 and 2016, as well as an appearance at the Nations Cup in Geneva (2016).
