Uppsala and Mainz wins in the Europacup

Uppsala and Mainz wins in the Europacup

The men’s competition was expected to once again be a battle between the two main rivals and dominating team for the past decade, Uppsala BGK from Sweden and BGS Hardenberg from Germany.

The Germans aimed for their tenth title but Uppsala had won 5 of the last six years. This year’s championship was played on eternit for the first time since 2005. That time Hardenberg won impressively and Uppsala had not yet won on eternit. So the Germans were not to be underestimated.

It was quite chilly conditions with only a few degrees above zero and even below zero in the night time, making it tough for the players.

And from the start Hardenberg took the grip with 126-125-124. This was a pace no others could really match and Uppsala was already 10 behind. Also in there for a match was Tempo Praha even with Uppsala after three rounds.

Then on round 4 came the round that was to be decisive for the tournament in the end. The Germans played a quite bad round of 143 and Uppsala played 127. All of a sudden the Swedes where in the lead by 6 strokes. And the round after they took another 4 strokes with the lowest round of the tournament 123. The rest was never any match. The Swedes played their rounds with around 21.0 averages and it was simply not possible for the Hardenberg Company to recover and get back into the match.

So Uppsala took the sixth title in seven years and their fourth in a row. This was the first title they took on eternit and by then they once again proved that they are truly the best club team in the world right now. This time the leader was as so many times before Carl-Johan Ryner. He was in the end the only player with a blue average. He had an impressive 11 lanes with all aces throughout the whole tournament. In the end he was two strokes better than Michel Rhyn from MC Olten, playing his best golf for a long time.

Hardenberg ended up 13 behind Uppsala and another 13 behind Hardenberg came Tempo Praha, defending their bronze from last year, and thus showing that they at the moment are number 3 in the world of Minigolf club teams.

Best individually:

1. Carl-Johan Ryner, Uppsala BGK, 179 (19,9)
2. Michel Rhyn, MC Olten, 181 (20,1)
3. Lars Brown, Uppsala BGK, 185 (20,6)
4. Jan Strandberg, Tantogården BGK, 186 (20,7)
5. Michael Koziol, BGS Hardenberg-Pötter, 188 (20,9)


If the men’s was very much about two team it was a completely different thing in the ladies class. All the way from start there were five teams competing for the medals. No less than 4 teams had the lead in different parts of the tournament. And the final winners from Mainz were down on fifth place with after five rounds. But with the by far best second half of the tournament the German ladies could win in the end by a quite comfortable margin of 6 strokes. In second place came the Swiss ladies from MC Olten and in third the second German team and the reigning Champions of Göttingen.

The home Czech team of MGC 90 Brno was for long in the lead but a terrible last day made them slip down to a final fifth place on the same results as the Swedish ladies from Gullbergsbro. In Brno we find the sovereign queen of the tournament Jana Nakladalova, who was 9 strokes better than the second best lady on an 21,2 average.

Best individually:

1. Jana Nakládalová, MGC '90 Brno, 191 (21,2)
2. Nicole Gundert-Greiffendorf, 1.MGC Mainz, 200 (22,2)
3. Stefanie Blendermann, MC Olten, 200 (22,2)
4. Nicole Piechotta, MGC Göttingen, 204 (22,7)
5. Sara Marchiani, GSP Cusano Milanino, 206 (22,9)
