|Selected questions from our interview with captains Mel Kunz and Olivia Hauser:
Talk us through the selection process for your team.
The selection was made by two independant players, Femke Wuille and Lorenz Stauffer. This was the first time two external players selected the team. We had two tryouts, one in December and one in January.
How has your team's season gone so far? What tournaments have you played?
We've played Paganello, Rimini and the tournament in Bibione. In Rimini we finished 7th and in Bibione we got second.
Who do you think will be the big contenders for the title in your division?
GB and Russia are strong teams, especially the russians showed their qualities in Rimini. But Finland is a strong team as well and let's not forget the German's. There might be some surprises like the Czech Team?
What is your favourite beach tournament? Why?
We love to play in Rimini, it used to be a huge event, unfortunately in the last couple of years, there were less teams to compete against. We hope for the future that there will be more women's teams again!|
