As usual, we start with the report on the main backcourt players of the Xmas Tournament 2014 in Kortrijk.

And the least I can say is that it was worth doing the short trip to Deerlijk.

The “Lange Munte” is a great location with two large courts and good crowd to support the young players. Let’s see what happened during the first day of the tournament.
