In Group 1 Victoria Rotterdam has already secured their sport in the playoffs and they are well on their way to win the Group and advance directly to semi-finals. Frans Otten Stadium only needs 4 points to qualify, and they have two matches left to make sure that happens with the last match being against Squash Almere who haven’t been a competitive adversary this year. There is even a small chance they could overtake Victoria for the top spot, though that is considered to be highly unlikely.

The big battle for the remaining spot will be between ‘Meersquash and Ridderkerk. There is only 5 points between them, with Ridderkerk having played one match less. ‘Meersquash will probably have an easy task today against Squash Almere and take the full 12 points. Ridderkerk however faces Frans Otten Stadium, where they will face Youssef Soliman, Juan Vargas and Andrew ‘The Wizard’ Widdison. Ridderkerk’s line-up is also not too shabby with Lucas Serme, Valentin Rapp and Rene Mijs, but will it be enough to stop Frans Otten ?

In Group 2 Twente and Houtrust have earned their spot in the playoffs and now it’s between Drachten, Apeldoorn and Utrecht to make out who will claim the third place. In this battle Drachten is probably too far behind, but Apeldoorn and Utrecht have very similar remaining schedule including one head to head on 13th of March, so that promises to be a very spectacular ending to the group.
