Dutch cricketers return to their own country after a trip to Africa

4.11 pm: The women of the Dutch cricket team are back in the Netherlands. The team was in Zimbabwe last week for a World Cup qualifier, but that was canceled after the discovery of the Omikron variant of the corona virus in southern Africa. Orange was able to return to their own country via a detour, via first Namibia, then Oman and then Doha.

“We are pleased that the Dutch women’s team has just returned safely from Zimbabwe,” said Jurgen Delfos, chairman of the Dutch cricket association KNCB. “The women are now being tested again, just like before the flight, and will be quarantined at home until at least December 5, provided they can also test negative at that time. We are grateful to the International Cricket Federation for arranging the flights. We will support our women’s team where possible during this quarantine time.”

The Dutch men are in South Africa, where they would play a series of matches against the host country. The series was interrupted after one game due to the corona vicissitudes. The cricketers stay in a ‘bubble’ in a hotel. They are tested daily and will probably fly directly back to the Netherlands on Thursday evening.

Hockey players Den Bosch in EHL against Irish club Pegasus

3.14 pm: The hockey players from Den Bosch will face the Irish club Pegasus in the quarterfinals of the Euro Hockey League. Den Bosch will defend the title at the most prestigious club tournament in Europe from 14 to 18 April in Amstelveen.

Amsterdam will compete in the last eight against Club de Campo de Madrid from Spain, this year’s finalist. Because Den Bosch and Amsterdam are not in the same half of the schedule, they can only meet in the final battle. This year, the two Dutch top clubs already met in the last four.

With the men, title holder Bloemendaal was linked to the winner of the meeting between the Spanish Atlètic Terrassa and Dinamo Ak-Bars from Russia. This year, Bloemendaal defeated Atlètic Terrassa in the final 5-2. Kampong will meet Uhlenhorst Mülheim from Germany.

NK short track swimming and NK tennis will continue in December

3.10 pm: The Dutch short track swimming championships and the Dutch tennis championships will continue in December despite the tightened corona measures. The swimmers will start their tournament on Friday in the Hofbad in The Hague, which lasts three days.

Due to the measures that do not allow sports after 5 p.m., we start early. The series starts on Friday at 8 a.m., on the weekend at 7:30 a.m. The program ends daily at 4:45 PM. Participants are not allowed to be in the pool earlier than one hour before their performance and must leave within half an hour after that. Public is not allowed in the battle for the national titles.

The tennis championships are played, also without an audience, at the National Tennis Center in Amstelveen. The tournament lasts from Monday 13 to Sunday 19 December. The event applies to the players in preparation for the new season, which starts in early January. Last year the titles went to Lesley Pattinama-Kerkhove and Jelle Sels. This year’s participants will be announced later.

Dutch handball players defend world title with an audience

2:44 pm: Despite the worrying corona figures, the World Handball Championship in Spain will be finished with spectators. Hassan Moustafa, boss of the international handball association IHF, stated this in an interview with the trade magazine handballwoche. Defending champions Netherlands will take action for the first time on Friday. It then plays in Torrevieja against Puerto Rico.

“The Spanish government currently allows 80% of the halls’ capacity to be used,” Moustafa said. The 2G rule applies to the entire tournament, which starts on Wednesday. This means that interested parties must demonstrate that they have been vaccinated or cured of corona.

The president of the IHF does not expect chaotic scenes around corona during the title fight that will visit various Spanish places from December 1 to 19. “The IHF will do everything it can to ensure the safety of all involved. The decision to admit only vaccinated or cured persons is one of the most important precautions for this event. We want to limit the risk of contamination as much as possible,” said the Egyptian. “That will only work if everyone involved adheres to the rules.”

RB Leipzig does not train after new corona infection

2.14 pm: The coronavirus continues to cause unrest at German football club RB Leipzig. On Tuesday, an employee of the club tested positive, after which it was decided to cancel the training. All players have undergone a PCR test. Leipzig will play an away game against Union Berlin on Friday.

At the beginning of last week, trainer Jesse Marsch and captain Peter Gulacsi were already found positive for the virus. After the Champions League match at Club Brugge, which the Germans won 5-0, positive tests were reported from the players Yussuf Poulsen, Hugo Novoa, Mohamed Simakan and Willi Orban.

With two more infected employees, the total number of corona cases comes to nine at the club from the state of Saxony, where strict corona measures are now in place. For example, the club has to play in front of empty stands. RB Leipzig reports that all employees who tested positively met the 2G rule: they had been vaccinated or cured of corona.

Gymnastics association KNGU cancels all competitions in December

1.01 pm: Gymnastics association KNGU has decided not to organize any more competitions this year. The union decided to do so because of the tightened corona measures. Many volunteers are involved in gymnastics competitions. With all the measures and uncertainties in force, it was already “an enormous challenge” to organize competitions and activities, according to the KNGU.

“As a federation, we also believe that we have a social responsibility at a time when public health is under enormous pressure,” says the gymnastics association, which then decided to postpone all remaining events in 2021.

“We understand and feel the enormous disappointment among the athletes, trainers-coaches and other supervisors,” the KNGU writes on the website. “Many gym athletes have had little or no opportunity to participate in competitions for almost two years and were looking forward to their performance on the competition floor. That perspective will disappear for the coming month. We are happy that part of the training can still be done within the current measures, so that the sport does not come to a complete standstill.”

In the meantime, the KNGU hopes that a parliamentary debate on Wednesday will lead to training after 5 p.m. in the coming period.

Amateur clubs participating in the cup are allowed to train in the evening

Amateur clubs that still participate in the KNVB Cup will be allowed to train in the evenings in the coming weeks. In total, eight amateur teams will make their appearance in the second round of the cup tournament on December 14, 15 and 16.

Amateur clubs in all sports are not allowed to train after 5 p.m. until December 18, as a measure to reduce the number of corona infections.

“Participants in top sports competitions, including the KNVB Cup, can continue to train in the evenings with the first selection in the coming weeks, despite the announced evening lockdown until December 18, which the cabinet announced last Friday. This gives them the opportunity to prepare well for the cup competitions that are scheduled for the week of 14 to 16 December,” according to the KNVB.

It concerns the amateurs of Gemert, Spakenburg, Achilles Veen, DVS’33 Ermelo, Excelsior Maassluis, Harkemase Boys, Barendrecht and De Treffers. Barendrecht awaits an away match against Ajax, the title holder in the cup tournament.

It is already certain that an amateur club will qualify for the third round of the KNVB Cup. Achilles Veen and DVS’33 Ermelo will compete against each other on Tuesday 14 December.

Basketball association suspends amateur competitions until 2022

11.20 am: The Dutch Basketball Association (NBB) has decided to postpone the amateur competitions until 2022. The competitions that fall under top sport will continue.

“The aim of the measures is to slow down the rapid increase in the number of corona infections and hospital admissions. The NBB believes it is important to contribute to this as much as possible,” the NBB reports.

The association calls on associations to continue to provide training, clinics and courses for their members within the available options and to organize practice matches between themselves where possible.

“We are faced with a very difficult dilemma here. Continuing to exercise and move in this special time is of great importance, after all, exercising and moving is part of the solution. However, we also feel a social responsibility. We want to prevent teams from having to play matches without training with a risk of injury as a result,” said Joop Brakenhoff, the chairman of the NBB.

“In recent weeks we have noticed that the number of cancellations of competitions due to corona has increased. This has also been taken into account in the considerations. With all the information we have now, we believe that the best solution is to postpone the three competition rounds in December.”

In the new year, the NBB hopes to be able to resume the competitions.

World number 1 Zhendong takes first table tennis world title

08:26: Chinese table tennis player Fan Zhendong has become world champion for the first time in his career. The number 1 in the world was in Houston in the final with clear figures too strong for the Swede Truls Möregardh: 11-6 11-9 11-7 11-8.

Zhendong has long been the number 1 in the world, but at the 2017 World Cup and last summer at the Tokyo Olympics, he lost in the final to table tennis legend Ma Long. The 33-year-old Long was not there in the United States. He was the best in the last three World Cups.

China is in a league of its own in global table tennis. Austrian Werner Schlager was the last table tennis player from outside China to take the global title in 2003.

The only 19-year-old Möregardh is the global number 77. He surprised the German Timo Boll in the last four.

Pelicans surprise Clippers in NBA thanks to Lithuanian Valanciunas

07:35 am: Jonas Valanciunas has given New Orleans Pelicans in the NBA a 39-point victory over LA Clippers. It went 123-104 for the visiting Pelicans at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The Lithuanian basketball player had the best night of his career and after the first two quarters he already had 29 points to his name. Thanks to the prolific Valanciunas, the Pelicans were already leading 67-52 halfway through.

Valanciunas was successful on his first seven three-pointer attempts. The 29-year-old Valanciunas is only the sixth player in the NBA since 1996-97 to see his first seven shots from distance all converted into a three-pointer in the first half.

Brandon Ingram accounted for 27 points with the Pelicans and Herbert Jones 16. With the home team, Paul George was good for 27 points.

For the Pelicans, who only had one win in their first thirteen games, it was only the sixth victory of the season. They occupy 14th place in the Western Conference. The Clippers are fifth.
