|Selected questions from our interview with captain Pierre Lemerle:
How many players does your team have? How many of them are making their beach debut?
The team has finally 14 players. We are a young team (26 years old is the average of the team). 8 players are making their beach debut (2 of them have already play in the open outdoor national team, 3 other in junior outdoor national team and the last 3 are making their national team debut!).How has your team's season gone so far? What tournaments have you played?
The season is… almost perfect until now: we played the Paganello, the goal was to finish 12th (as our seeding), and we finish 11th! Then, we played the YesButNau, the goal was to finish as well as in 2011 (3rd in preparation for the WBUC) and… We win it! Now we are ready for the ECBU.Which teams are you looking forward to playing against the most in Spain and why?
Maybe the few teams we have never played before (Spain, Latvia, Hungary and Poland)Who do you think will be the big contenders for the title in your division?
Probably the title defenders: Switzerland.
