“The choice to stop playing beach volleyball has been a very difficult one. I enjoyed the beach volleyball sport and I think there was progress. I stop due to multiple factors. I have often had a back injury this season which also resulted in other physical complaints. In addition, it has been difficult to combine family life with the many trips as a beach volleyball player. By combining these factors, I decided to to stop.”

Manon’s last major tournament was at the World Champs in Vienna over a week ago. She and Marleen finished 17th. There’s no word yet if Manon will resume her professional indoor career.
