Pien Sanders

 

 

Pien Sanders started playing hockey at Udenhout (6 years old) because my parents also played hockey. From there I went to Tilburg and then Den Bosch asked me to play at the mc1. At the age of 15 I was allowed to make my debut with ladies 1 in the premier league and at the age of 16 I had my first contract! After the Rio games I was allowed to join the Dutch team and when I was 18 I made my debut for the Netherlands.

In addition, the Pure Studio Elite series is equipped with the new Wave Torsion Box Technology. This exclusive technology ensures optimal torsional rigidity by applying a wave construction in the shaft. On off-center hits, the wave construction corrects to get more redundancy out of your shots.

Q & A

What is the best advice you ever got and who gave it to you?

The best advice I ever got is that everything I do I have to enjoy to the fullest. This way you get the most out of your life and makes you be the best you can be. I got this advise from my parents when I was young.

What other sport would you like to be great at and have you already tried this? What was you experience with it?

I like Padel a lot and I’ve tried this a few times. It’s really awesome.

What other athlete do you admire and why?

I really admire Usain Bolt because he allways knew who to perform well under pressure.

If you wanted to live in another country, which would is be and why?

I wouldn’t mind living in Spain. Manely because it is still Europe, close to Holland and I can enjoy the sun in a relax atmosphere.
