GREAT Britain women are in Holland this week as their preparations for the World Championships in Poland next month gather pace. The squad will be staying in Limburg this week, mixing training sessions with training matches against domestic Dutch clubs - as well as helping GB shirt sponsor TastyLimburg with a number or promotional activities.
The team will take on Loreal on Thursday evening, and then visit a local school on Friday afternoon before playing Bevo HC that evening. On Saturday they will play a third local side, before another promotional event with Limburg at a local spa. The team will travel to Poland on Monday to begin preparations for the qualification matches, which start on Wednesday, December 1, with a clash against familiar rivals Austria at the Globus Hall, Lublin. See below for GB Women’s World Championship match itinerary.
