We are extremely fortunate that she has become one of our VIBBALL ambassadors and joined our VIBBALL family.
All the children were glad to get back in action and start practicing again this week. Our fundamental practices are held in safe conditions and we follow all the necessary requirements and rules. There were a lot of happy faces at the end of practices, when our VIBBALL mascot Leopárd was introduced. The players received this panther mascot to bring a little VIBBALL feeling into their homes too. Let's go VIBBALL Panthers!
We wish you a Happy New Year. Our coaches are excited to start our practices again. We will keep you informed about the exact details of the training program as soon as possible.
