I like ball sports. Football, tennis, padel and golf are amongst the games I like most.

Royal La Rasante is the club where I spend most of the time. As former member’s committee member I keep a close relationship with the management of my favourite club.

During winter time and weekdays, its is indoor soccer time! Team mates can sign up for a friendly or join the Urban Soccer League.

Padel is not well known in Belgium. However, Europadel is a club that organizes regular Padel events in Waterloo Tennis club. I am promoting Padel in Brussels and hope more courts will become available in the near future. Do not hesitate to contact me, if you are looking for a club to play Padel in or around Brussels.

When it comes to football, I support K.V. Mechelen, a.k.a. Malinwa. K.V. Mechelen founded in 1904, won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup and the European Super Cup in 1988. It is a modest team but with the best fans of the league. The home games are enternaining for young and old.
