Hi everyone, I'm back! I wrote the first couple of these for this tournament, before I was able to palm the job off onto each matches captain, but unfortunately (for you guys) I'm back for the day. It's OK, someone else will take over tomorrow. The day kicked off much like all others so far, [...]

After having to wait that extra day to get to play, it was finally time to play our first game, only we had to wait until the final time slot too. With so much time before our game the day was pretty cruisey. After breakfast we had a cheeky meeting to discuss the plan for [...]

Day 3 of our trip saw the competition kick off, although we had the bye straight up, meaning we don't play until tomorrow. Today was also probably our longest day at the stadium, so having the bye might have been a stroke of luck after all. After having most of the morning to ourselves, bar [...]

Cześć,   In the final day of the pool matches we found ourselves up against the number 1 team in the world, The Netherlands. We were all excited, and maybe a tad nervous, in preparation for the match. Torrential rain started during the bus ride to the game and we all got soaked walking into [...]

Dear diary,   The morning started late with a 9 o'clock breakfast. We had some sightseeing planned but with news from Pete (our Polish volunteer) that the bags had been found, plans changed.
