The Belgian women’s team’s bronze medal is the ever medal won by our national female squash team at a European Championships.
In the play-off match for 3rd place Belgium beat The Netherlands two games to nil.
Nele Gilis beat her Dutch opponent Milou van der Heijden in an exciting five-set match. Then Tinne Gilis beat Natalie Grinham 3-1. With Belgium two matches to nil up the third game was superfluous to requirements.
