GBW take on PERU in Olympic Warm Up matches…

The GB Women have been re-united and are ready to take on the worlds best, starting next week against world number 17 PERU…

The Great Britain Women played against Peru in a series of 4 competitive matches during their tour of South America last summer.  This time Peru are coming to Sheffield for a re-match in preparation for their Continental Olympic Qualifier next month.

This will be ideal opposition for the GBW as they commence their final phase of Olympic Preparations with the added bonus of the chance to catch a sneak preview of potential Olympic Opposition.

Peru will join the GBW for a 4 day training camp next week, with an official International match taking place on Tuesday.

Date: Tuesday 1st May 2012
Time: 7pm
Venue:  EIS, Sheffield

We spoke to the GBW Head Coach, Audrey Cooper, about the summer ahead of the matches next week against Peru:

Head Coach - Audrey Cooper

We have a big summer ahead of us with two major tournaments, the Olympic Games and the European Championship Qualifiers. After watching the players from afar over the winter, it is great to have them back in sheffield. After one week of training it is good to see the improvements, appetite and determination of all the players. I am excited about the prospects of this team reaching its full potential and delivering our style of play on the court. Competition for places is high as we embark on the final stretch of this amazing journey. It all starts next week with competition against Peru… Bring it on.


Come along and support the GBW as their Olympic summer gets underway.  Every match counts in order for them to be the best they can be in just under 100 days time, when they play their first match at Earls Court at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
