GamePoint to attend Mixed Media On the Beach
Thursday, May 24, 2012 at 13:15
After the huge success of GamePoint’s running team at the SDU business run 10K race, we have decided to give our Beachvolley skills a go as well. That’s why GamePoint has entered the Mixed Media on the Beach event. The beach volleyball tournament for companies active in the Media industry in Holland. We look forward to meeting all the other teams and sharing our thoughts on our Games and their position in the media. But off course this post is also a warning to those teams afraid to lose; our training has commenced!
In an interview with GamePoint’s Director of Sports Ivo Lindhout he states the following: “I was really content with our athletes in the business run and in a way this was the perfect preparation for the beach volley tournament. Combining this with our secret talent Eelco Verbeek, 2.06 M (6ft 8”) and our experienced team captain Thorben Olde which we managed to fly in from Germany just before the transfer season closed, I must say I’m quite confident. ”
Mr. Lindhout did not want to comment on specific tactics that will be used during the tournament, but did add some vague hints to their tactics. “I guess everybody knows the style of our new captain, so that’s no secret. And it would be a wasted chance if we don’t take full advantage of the height we have in our team. If injuries don’t spoil the party, we should be going in for a solid performance.”
In a final statement he added: “I think it would be in place to thank the guys on the team. They are putting in a huge effort in training and preparation. In a way this is a dream come true for all of them.”
It looks like the boys are up for it and all of them hope to meet you there as well! Feel welcome to drop by the team to discuss business or just to wish them good luck (and maybe get their autograph).
