Polish Tchoukball Cup 2019

On 2-3 February our team went to Rybnik to fight for the Polish Cup. For the first time we played in our new kits that had been sponsored by TRIGON. Unfortunately, during first three matches fantastic outfits weren’t enough to overcome our mistakes and not the best overall game. We were defeated by Różanka (which was a big disappointment) 34:35, Urszulanki (basically younger players of Ursus Rybnik) 41:43 and the hosts, Ursus Rybnik, themselves 33:44. Eventually we came to our good form during the last match on Saturday and we almost crushed ZSKCR Henryków 44:22.

Sunday was a completely different day for us. We played only two matches but both won in a grand style. The first one was a tough battle (as always) with Warsaw Hornets. Due to the fantastic team spirit and some really big effort the score was 42:37 in our favour. And finally we smoothly defeated Jelenie w Terenie (Deers on Hills) 46:32. Therefore we secured the third place in this fantastically organized tournament.

We are really happy with the result but more important thing is that we’ve gained confidence before the most important tournament of the season – European Silver Cup 2019 that will take place in Italian Rovello on 22-24 March. Keep our fingers crossed for our performance there!
