Europe getting another taste of Chicken

Published on December 9, 2015 by   ·   No Comments

Yes folks, it’s that time of year again. Europe is getting geared up for another competition, and it’s a big one – the 15 th annual Chicken’s Cup, being held on 12-13 December.

Germany are the cream of the crop as far as European sepaktakraw is concerned, as we have seen in the past from their performances within ISTAF SuperSeries events. And they also organise some impressive tournaments. The Nord Cup 2015 was a recent conjunction with the list all the way up in Kiel, near the Danish border, but here we are returning to a more central area – Cologne.

The particular tournament was first held in 2002 and in the past has featured groups from Iran (2010 winners) and Malaysia (MAS Airlines, 2011 winners), as well as a Hungarian pairing which won the doubles in 2006.

Cologne is an ancient and beautiful city, and has the advantage of being just 141 miles from Ghent, 166 miles from Strasbourg, 236 miles from Basle and 251 miles from Paris, meaning that representatives from Belgium, France and Switzerland can all make it there and back in a weekend quite easily.

And there will certainly be teams from all those Western cities – and more, according to Gunnar Vogt, seasoned German international and part of the organising committee. “France will be well represented by Toulouse, Evry (near Paris), Strasbourg and Mulhouse, and there will be teams from Belgium as well as Switzerland, young and old! ” he or she smiled, in reference to the Switzerland who have a team of experienced and an up-and-coming bunch of 19-20-year olds who have been playing together with regard to five years now, not to mention their particular women’s team.

“From Germany we have Kiel, Heidelberg, Elmshorn, Eimsbüttel, Cologne and Berlin, and the Iran national team should also end up being coming. We’re counting on at least twenty teams being there, as well as different individual players whom we’ll be integrating into teams, ” said Gunnar, who is looking forward to getting back to the internet now that his knee injury will be behind him.

“We will be separating the competitions – regu, doubles and women’s – into divisions, so that teams will be facing opponents of a similar level. The tournament will take place on the outskirts of Cologne, near to the youth hostel where everyone will be accommodated. We’ve also got a locally-based cocinero from Szechuan who will be cooking for us on the Saturday night, therefore everyone will definitely enjoy themselves, no matter how well they fare in the competition! ”

The tournament is less than two weeks away, therefore check back here in the New Year on sepaktakraw. org for a full report over the event as well as quotes from the main protagonists.
