It is with profound sadness and deep regret to announce the death of our friend, colleague and organiser HENRIEKE SCHOONEKAMP.

Henrieke was always an inspiration to us all. Although she was seriously ill she kept going and never lost her optimistic & cheerful nature. She was only 40 years old and spent many years suffering a long and painful illness but did not let it ruin or change her life.

Henrieke was a valued member of the team in all our football organisations (WPIST & Mallorca football tournaments) for many years. She was responsible for our guides during the WPIST tournament and she also was a key member of staff during the Mallorca tournaments. Her Spanish was fantastic and she made many friends there.

She worked for the Region Oost Police Dept. in the Netherlands but loved dedicating her spare time to writing articles & blogs for several newspapers and online platforms, it was her passion.

She had also volunteered for the Mundo de Niños EV organisation, she travelled several times to Huanchaco in Peru to work with the children desperate for International help and aid. The children over there were so important to Henrieke, they became part of her life, she was devastated that due to her auto-immune illness she could not travel to Peru to see & help HER children anymore. She missed them terribly………….

Last Saturday during a staff Mallorca tournament meeting we received her last recorded good bye video message, she told us that after 3 long and hard years of fighting she was exhausted.
We will always remember Henrieke as a beautiful, strong, cheerful young woman.
On behalf of the board, volunteers and referees we pray that her family, friends and colleagues find strength in this painful and very difficult period.

The tournaments will never be the same without you Henrieke, your smile, your laugh and fun loving personality, you are going to be missed terribly.
May you now rest in peace………………….

Lieve Henrieke namens al jouw vrienden en vriendinnen van het World Police Indoor Soccer Tournament en Mallorca tournaments zullen we jou herinneren als een fantastische persoonlijkheid. Jouw vechtlust en blijvend optimisme was een inspiratiebron voor ons allemaal.
Lieve Henrieke rust zacht.

دورة كرة القدم لفرق الحكومة في أكتوبر 2020 في سانتا بونسا مالوركا. 22-26 أكتوبر 2020 سننظم بطولة كرة قدم بديلة للفرق الحكومية في سانتا بونسا مايوركا

Cancellation of the 2020 World Police Indoor Soccer Tournament.

Dear participants of the 38th World Police Indoor Soccer Tournament,

After several meetings we want to share the following information with you; Due to Dutch national & regional restrictions we were forced to cancel the 2020 World Police Indoor Soccer Tournament.
We are all aware that the Coronavirus has spread throughout Europe and the rest of the world. The infection has interrupted our plans to celebrate our 38th World Police Indoor Soccer in the Netherlands in the beautiful area of Groenlo and Eibergen!

We did our best to make it possible and we are very sad we couldn’t organise the event this year. We are bound to follow the national and local restrictions regarding the housing of individual people. The Dutch government isn’t gone make any mayor chances before the first of September regarding the restrictions. As you can imagine it takes a certain amount of time to organise the WPIST tournament and make reservations for the accommodation for all the participants. We had to make this shared decision with all business partners who help us every year organise the WPIST tournament.

This tournament was organised with great enthusiasm, we wanted to see you all competing and having a fantastic time. We know realistically that this is now just a dream. Our level of commitment to the WPIST will always be a high priority, but we are bound by the national &regional restrictions. So, what we would like to propose, that we all keep our enthusiasm, passion and energy and plan to have the best WPIST tournament ever in OCTOBER 2021 in Groenlo & Eibergen in the Netherlands.

Registration fee Options
1. The 2020 registrations fees can be transferred to the WPIST tournament in 2021 (In this case you don’t have to pay the tournament fee in 2021)
2. Registration fees can be fully refunded: Please send name, full bank details and IBAN number to info@wpist.eu

We know that you will be disappointed but we are sure that you will understand our decision and support us.

Oh! 😳 In this year we did not planed to participate on it.. but it is awful! I’m sorry so so much! So many efforts, energy, time and love in the backstage works.. Be brave guys! You did your best as always! Do not be sad Harry Engels, show must go on ! ⚽️❤️

Jammer, maar dit hadden we, gezien de situatie en de onmogelijkheid om 1,5 m afstand te houden met zoveel mensen bij elkaar, zelf al ingecalculeerd. 🤔😭 Volgend jaar betere omstandigheden hopen we dan maar 👍👋

Daar waar ik met de winkel Zuivelhoeve Eibergen in oktober elk jaar zo naar uitkijk, ontzettend jammer. Jullie gaan er volgend jaar met veel enthousiasme iets moois van maken. En wij doen daar zeker aan mee!! 💪🍀

Goede beslissing, nieuw jaar nieuwe kansen, hou vooral de moed en het enthousiasme vast!!!

Jammer! 🙃🤫

No surprise there

Jammer maar zeker verstandig!! Xoxo to all

Jammer maar begrijpelijk
