Germany is looking for the Beach Hockey Champion

IP Dynam­ics is proud to have sup­ported the team “Shin­break­ers” at the 12th Ger­man Beach Hockey Cham­pi­onship as one of six spon­sors. At this annual and steadily grow­ing event around the two courts at the See­brücke there was some­thing excit­ing for every vis­i­tor. The sport­ing high­lights were com­ple­mented by an attrac­tive sup­port­ing pro­gramme.

A few weeks after the end of the Ger­man Hockey League sea­son, both hobby and national play­ers met for the cult tour­na­ment on Tim­men­dorf beach. True to the motto “Hockey stars up close”, the fans in the “Nice of the Baltic Sea” got to see a dozen cur­rent as well as for­mer national and Bun­desliga play­ers, many of whom are dec­o­rated with Olympic medals or World Cup and Euro­pean medals.

Dur­ing the tour­na­ment it quickly became appar­ent that the name “Shin­break­ers” could not be taken seri­ously lit­er­ally. Even though the IP Dynam­ics spon­sored team fought pas­sion­ately for vic­tory, fair­ness and fair play were always in the fore­ground. On Fri­day the “Shin­break­ers” were allowed to start against the later final­ist the “Kornknacker”, but with­out any chance. Even if the sec­ond game went much bet­ter, a defeat against the “Wild­pigs” with 1:5 had to be accepted. Well rested and highly moti­vated a hard fought but deserved 3:2 was brought in on Sat­ur­day. The sec­ond game on Sat­ur­day unfor­tu­nately had to be inter­rupted due to a sud­den change in the weather. On the last day at the early hour at 8:20 am, the “Shin­break­ers” won the place­ment game with 3:1 and reached the 13th place of a total of 20 teams! Win­ner of the Beach-​Hockey-​DM 2019 became the sur­pris­ing team “Griechenohneland”. “The tour­na­ment was a com­plete suc­cess”, says Jörg Schon­hardt, head of organ­i­sa­tion of the event.

In addi­tion to the high-​class sport under the direc­tion of expe­ri­enced Bun­desliga ref­er­ees, there was also a third play­ing field in Timmendorf’s Kur­park, where hol­i­day­mak­ers and guests could try out their hockey sticks. A lot of fun for young and old – all the more thanks to the won­der­ful ambi­ence with sea, lots of sun and music!

We are look­ing for­ward to a unique week­end”, says “Shin­break­ers” Cap­tain Daniel Kri­wet, “and thank IP Dynam­ics for the gen­er­ous sup­port of our team”.
