Each delegation, which is participating at the Team competition Challenge Cup has to send at least 4 men players and 4 women players. Participating teams at the Challenge Cup are allowed to send a maximum of 6 men players and 6 women players.
Those delegations, which are not capable to send a full team (e.g. because they don’t have enough players of each gender) are invited to send not more than 8 players. Individual arrangements are possible and could be discussed with Secretary General WTF Reinhard Plog. The hosting federation Germany is authorized to announce two full teams for the Challenge Cup.
This assures that we will have an attractive competition with a lot of action at our main event Challenge Cup. Those delegations, which are incomplete are intended to built a Challenge Cup team with other incomplete delegations. This will give incomplete delegations the chance to share the special atmosphere of our special event Challenge Cup.
News from inside: Mario Mueller resigned as head coach of the German team. New head coach now is Thomas Bleile. Those who have been in Koblenz in 2010 know him already as organizer of the referee scheduling that time. For his new office as German head coach he selected Christian Herzog and Juergen Oettel as his assistant coaches. He is looking forward to prepare the German team for the upcoming Challenge Cup 2012 and the World Cup 2014.
