Sportshall 18th edition EVRICup 2012 Valkenswaard outdated
Valkenswaard - The sportshall where the club Valkenswaardse Roller Club (V.R.C.) operates with rollerhockey and figure skating is quite outdated. And this sportshall, De Dennenberg, will most probably have to close in 2013. An alternative is not there yet. Marty van den Brand, president of the Technical Committee of the rollerhockey section, says that the floor is a big problem. Van den Brand : "We still hope that we can stay here in this part of Valkenswaard and hope that the community of Valkenswaard understands that. With a good boost, we are on our way." Until then V.R.C. is still playing in an old sportshall. Chairman of the Club V.R.C., Marc Schoonderwoert, the municipality of Valkenswaard has already proposed to renovate the sportshall. "In the short term, we do need support of the municipality," he says. V.R.C. is still in consultation with the municipality of Valkenswaard for a better sportshall.

A lot of interest from Spain, Italy, Germany, Belgium and Suisse
Delft - More than 2 months before the closing of the registration term (01-03-12) there is a lot of interest to participate in the 18th EVRICup edition Valkenswaard - The Netherlands. Currently, there are 7 veterans teams on the waitinglist who wait if they can take part in the rollerhockeyevent. This decision will not be made earlier than 01-03-12 because in the EVRICup rules (see item on the website) there is a procedure that first the teams on the EVRICup rankinglist are invited. This goes on the order of the number of received EVRICup points. During one of the delegatesmeetings in the past also is decided that the expansion must come from countries that have not yet been represented. It concerns the countries France, Suisse and Austria. For this reason, a Swiss veteran team is the first on the waitinglist (see item Vwaard 2012).
