A sound mind in a sound body.

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.

Get a piece of the action at the Tournaments for mixed teams in Helsinki 2017.

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.

Lamotsite

I spent my adolescence, went to school and lost my virginity in Mechelen. That time, the city hosted many breweries. One of them, Lamot, left its heritage with a fysical urban landmark. The Lamot brewery and production centre were radically renovated between 2000 and 2005. The historical legacy of the site and building set the footprint for the ‘Lamot Conference- and Heritage Centre’, a bistro,  a hotel, offices and lofts. The ‘Residentie Lamot‘ is a newly built residence (condo). This contemporary architecture has been succesfully integrated with monumental heritage and urban renewal.
