The fistballers of tomorrow picked up picked up some useful tips and tricks from Dietmar Weiss & co.

Team coach Winfried Kronsteiner then formed two teams who played a couple of sets in front of the roughly 150 spectators. "The focus of the short training camp at Whitsun was on short internal test matches anyway, so the change of scenery was ideal," says the Steyr-based 39-year-old. The OC Team of the 2011 Fistball WCH attracted tremendous interest with another fan merchandise stand where it presented the "2011 Fistball WCH Flag" for the first time. The team stayed on for another 30 minutes after the match to give autographs and take time for the fans.

The training session continued on Whit Monday at the Austrian Fistball Association's High Performance Centre which is located at the Linz ASKÖ Bewegungscenter. Kronsteiner will name his 11-man squad for the training camp in Faak am See, Carinthia, after the Austrian Bundesliga finals in Grieskirchen at the end of June.
