They will arrive on Friday 26th May and will take part in a training camp alongside 30 players from Belgium. The group will be based in Molenheide and will visit both Brussels and Paris for sightseeing, as well as the Liebherr 2017 World Championship in Düsseldorf.
It is a tournament in which many of Belgium’s new generation have participated in the past; notably Laurens Devos and Florian Van Acker, who secured gold medals at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games have competed, as have the likes of Robin Devos, Cédric Nuytinck, Eline Loyen and Lisa Lung.
The tournament is very much the first step on the international ladder; a chance to gain experience and test skills against those from foreign shores.
