Aan het tweedaagse toernooi namen achttien spelers deel in de 'schuurpapier'-categorie. In het hardbat(plankjes)toernooi werd met eigen bats gespeeld en daarom voldeed het niet aan onze regels. De organisatie overweegt om dat volgend jaar te wijzigen. In de praktijk bleek ook dat er veel meer hardbat(plankjes)spelers aanwezig waren dan schuurpapier-spelers.

Nederland was vertegenwoordigd met een grote groep van maar liefst tien spelers. Via Facebook was een enthousiaste campagne opgezet, die tot dit opvallende resultaat leidde. Hoewel de Nederlanders in de finale uitkwamen, was er één geduchte concurrent, Yohan Lecomte uit Frankrijk, die het Reginald knap lastig wist te maken. In de eindstrijd was het de sterke verdediger van TTV Hilversum, die duidelijk de beste was. Verder maakten ook Ronald Vijverberg en Michel van de Kamp deel uit van de top-5. Annemarie Zijnstra (10e) was de enige vrouwelijke deelnemer.

Een groot compliment voor de organisatie verdienen Hilmar Heinrichmeyer en zijn collega's.

LAST NEWS FROM NORDHORN

The tournament victories at the Nordhorn Brettchen Open went to France and Holland

Nordhorn (HH). Just for the second time in the history of Nordhorn Brettchen Open, the tournament for classic table tennis, the victory did not fall to Germany. As in 2008 his compatriot Jean-Michel Carquin on Saturday with Yohan Lecomte from STT Amiens a Frenchman won the Hardbat I category. In the inaugural clickball category on Sunday with Arnoud Meijer of TTV Hilversum expectedly won a player of the strong Dutch WUTTO-team.

In the clickball premiere on Sunday with uniform sandpaper rackets like 100 years ago the best of the ten Dutch players from the WUTTO hardbat ranking list dominated. The final between the two ranking leaders Reginald Kraaijenbrink (TTV Hercules Terborg) and Arnoud Meijer, both participants in the Ping Pong World Championships in London, was a clear matter for Meijer, who in the semifinals had thrown out his compatriot Ronald Vijverberg (FVT Rotterdam) while Kraaijenbrink had prevailed after a hard fight against the Saturday Hardbat I winner Yohan Lecomte, who thus with a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place became the most successful player of the Nordhorn tournament.

The clickball premiere brought very strong players from the Netherlands and France to Nordhorn, who would have gladly played against equally strong Germans. But these did not take part. Some of them indeed had made their entry but did not appear without excuse, others perhaps were put off by the high entry fee. At least for the players from the local county that could have been one reason for their very low level of participation on Sunday, especially since they have not to pay any entry fee for all other tournaments here due to the rules of the local association. Here the organizers will have to begin with the tournament wrapping up, and must also review the restriction to only one clickball class without doubles. This year's basic condition to organize the clickball class exactly like the official clickball qualifier tournaments has not led to the fact that the goal of the organizer could be realized to achieve a good participation of German players. But then this basic condition must also be called into question, if it is not consistent with the interests of the participants in an open tournament that the NBO are in any case.
