National Team

The german national squad for the World Championships 2024 in London.

Theresa Knauf
Roundnet Raccoons
info
Strength, speed, precision and a technique that inspires - these are just a few of the characteristics that describe Theresa's style of play. With podium finishes at every tournament she has competed in and the RG Player of the Year (f) award in 2023, Theresa is probably the most successful woman in Germany at the moment. Whether on or off the pitch, she impresses with her calm and positive character and therefore complements the national team not only as a player but also personally. close
Raphaela Pfund
Munich Roundnet Community e.V.
info
Raphaela Pfund has made incredible progress over the past year. Her increasingly powerful serves and constant drive to improve continually impress us. Raphaela shows remarkable dedication and passion for the game, which is truly infectious. With her commitment, she is a valuable asset to the 2024 World Championship team. close
Sophia Walter
1. Roundnet Club Köln
info
Blue and green bruises - that's how Sophia's body often looks after a day at the tournament, which shows how much commitment and passion she puts into playing roundnet. She is known for her strong backhand serve and the power of her hits. Both on and off the court, the likeable player from Cologne is always in a good mood and has a cheeky comment - her performance so far this season speaks for itself, which is why she has more than earned her place in the national team. close
Julia Kathy Grob
1. Roundnet-Verein Mainz e.V.
info
Julia Kathy Grob, who only joined the tournament scene last year, is a true powerhouse. Her quick serves and relentless ambition to constantly improve make her an outstanding player. Since the second selection camp, she has been affectionately known as Julia KG and has become an indispensable part of the 2024 World Championship team. close
Klara Bauer
1. Roundnet Club Köln
info
Klara has shown several times this season why she is one of the top women in Germany. Thanks to her relaxed but confident manner, she is always fully present in the game and impresses with her power in the serves, her hits and her strong defense. The combination of her strength and power, coupled with her ease, makes her a unique player who will enrich the 2024 national team. close
Tina Gulden
OBB Roundnet Wendland
info
With her experience as a national player at the 2022 World Cup, the 2023 European Championship and participation in various national and international tournaments, Tina is an integral part of the 2024 national team. One-legged perfect sets, clever finishes with an eye and a game with full heart and soul describe her style of play. She enjoys sharing her expertise with others, which also makes her an enrichment for the team. close
Alexa Peusch
Roundnet Ravens Marburg
info
As the current German mixed champion and winner of the RG Award for "Best Server (f)" in 2023, Alexa is once again part of the national team this year. She impresses with powerful serves, remarkable positioning in the game and mental strength. This allows Alexa to give her playing partners a lot of confidence, making her a great asset to the team. close
Nora Haas
Nora Haas, 28
Peacocks Paderborn
info
A permanent participant in German tournaments, she also won the title at the German Nationals last year in addition to the European Championship. Together with Tina Gulden, she has already secured second place twice this year at the German Masters tournaments in Cologne and Potsdam and the bronze medal at the German Mixed Championships with Peer Kanis. Her collection of trophies reflects her immense experience, which she brings to the team and makes it all the stronger. close
Franziska Stadler
Munich Roundnet Community e.V.
info
In 2022, Franzi's sister Julia wrote shortly after Franzi's knee injury, "Franzi is the strongest woman I know ❤️." This statement couldn't be more accurate, as Franzi Stadler returns from rehab stronger and more determined. Her athletic prowess and impressive defensive skills make her an integral part of the 2024 World Championship team. On the field, she is a true fighter and an inspiration to us all. close
Julia Stadler
Karlsruher Kojoten
info
Julia Stadler brings unmatched energy and mental strength to the team. Her loud voice and determined personality constantly push her teammates to perform at their best. Julia is known for never giving up on any ball – she is often seen diving to the ground in a fierce battle for the ball, always ready to win the next point. Her relentless effort and fighting spirit make her a true pillar of the 2024 World Championship team. close
Ronja Lorenz
Roundnet Club Basel
info
Ronja was also part of the national team at the first World Championship in 2022. Back then, she was still a newcomer in the role of an alternate, but now she is not only a permanent member of the German national team, but is also without question one of the absolute elite of the roundnet world. After a 2nd place and an extremely strong final performance at the STS Championships 2023, she showed this year with new team partners, among other things with a 2nd place at the Cologne Trophy and above all with a dominant victory at the ETS Bologna, that she more than deserved these results and also her nomination with her performance. close
Jessica Riedelsheimer
Roundnet Rabbits Regensburg
info
The Regensburg native may not have been on everyone's radar in recent years, but since this winter at the latest, the defense machine has arrived at the absolute elite in Germany thanks to her athletic style of play. She has already won the 1. Roundnet Bundesliga with her team this year and celebrated tournament successes in Cologne and Regensburg as a duo. She also achieved strong results in Leuven (Belgium) and Kiel this year, all without a permanent team partner. Her unique style of play, her qualities as an absolute team player and her flexibility will be important assets for the German team. close
Paul Siemer
1. Roundnet Club Köln
info
Paul Siemer is a man who can't lose - in two ways. Anyone who has ever actually seen Paul lose, knows that it's best to leave him alone for a while. At the same time, he has 30 tournament wins in his Roundnet career, and that's just the ones registered in Playerzone. Not even a 6-month trip around the world could interrupt his winning streak. Paul brings the complete skillset to the net and proves himself time and time again as one of the best, if not the best, roundnet player in Europe. Together with his partner Lukas, their aim this year is to conquer the world's elite. close
Paul Schirop
Karlsruher Kojoten
info
Paul is anything but new to the sport and has shown himself at the top from time to time. Through the fresh acquisition of a very constant serving pressure, he has rounded off his skillset and convinces without exception with positive energy, consistency in all facets and exemplary team capability. With Paul as a teammate, you have a rock at your side who fights to the very last point and motivates you to give all you've got. We are delighted to have Paul as part of the team. close
Jonathan Harder
Westwood Tweener Roundnet
info
Bang, bang, bang! Nothing has been heard more often around the nets where Jonathan was present this year. Our youngster has taken part in almost every tournament Roundnet Europe has to offer this year and has never disappointed with his performances. Joni's arsenal of weapons from the serving line will be familiar to most people from social media, but we assure you: It looks the same in real life! However, the social media celebrity has made huge strides in all areas of the game and that's why it's impossible to imagine the team without him! We're already looking forward to all the reels that will be created in London and hope not to be marked too often for all opponents, which usually means nothing good... close
Emil Grönebaum
Red Eagles - Roundnet Berlin
info
Emil is celebrating his German national team debut this year and will be supporting our team in London. The cheerful Berliner is almost always in a good mood, celebrates everything and everyone for cool plays and always gives you the feeling of being at home at the net. Unfortunately, Emil is not quite so nice to his opponents when it comes to distributing points and impresses with his extreme athleticism in finishing and receiving. His variance in serving rounds off Emil's skillset perfectly and makes him one of the most dangerous all-rounders in Europe! With his good mood, which can only be spoiled by terrible positional play in defense, Emil will infect the team and ensure a positive atmosphere even in the rain in London. close
Rasmus Prüfer
Red Eagles - Roundnet Berlin
info
Rasmus is celebrating his national team debut this year and absolutely deserves it! When the Berliner is on the serving line, nobody on this planet is safe from a break. But it's not just his serving, but above all his extremely well-developed technique in setting and hitting that makes his opponents quickly realize that he is anything but a pure serveballer! Rasmus will hit like a truck at the World Championships and the only question is whether he will get more defensive touches than his opponents will get their hands on the ball when receiving! close
Peer Kanis
Red Eagles - Roundnet Berlin
info
Especially in mixed, Peer shows time and time and again why he is one of the best in this division with his unique style of play. With his gravity-defying acrobatics, tireless speed and serves that you would never have thought possible before, it sometimes feels like you're watching a cartoon when he's standing at the net (or in the air). Peer already represented Germany in the mixed at the last World Championships and we are proud to have him back in the team, stronger than ever before after an injury last year. close
Tim Klement
Roundnet Ravens Marburg
info
The former tennis player has put in another remarkable performance at the net this year and has more than earned his promotion from substitute to permanent squad member. Few are as ambitious and motivated as Tim, who always proves this with his ambitious, dynamic defensive style and communicative charisma. With Tim as a team partner, you can rely on numerous touches, precise sets, ice-cold finishes and powerful serves. BAMM! close
Lucas Christiani
Torpedo Phoenix Roundnet Dortmund
info
You really can't call the Dortmund player a newcomer this year. Lucas looks like he has decades of experience at the top of the European roundnet, both on and off the net, and this has been reflected in his results this year. His consistency and calmness in the game, but above all his extreme flexibility in every situation, make him a perfect team player. We're excited to see how often Lucas ignites at the World Cup and look forward to many signature backhand finishes from our machine from Dortmund! close
Julian Krehle
Roundnet Darmstadt
info
Julian has continued to develop his roundnet talent over the years and is now a well respected face in the European roundnet scene. When he plays, he invariably competes for one of the top spots, no matter who else is playing. If not with aces, he breaks his opponents point by point with overshadowing blocks and ice-cold finishes. Julian certainly has nothing to hide at the World Championships. close
Josha Lauterbach
Roundnet Heidelberg beim TSV Handschuhsheim
info
Our exceptional talent from Heidelberg has been extremely impressive this year with consistent performances throughout. Josha's athleticism and his creativity in all game situations make him an extremely unpleasant opponent! His self-confidence and extremely strong will to win would inspire any team and should give us the necessary impulse in tight situations to close out important games. There is basically only one question remaining: how many different serves will Josha show at the World Championship? Answer: Yes! close
Fabian Claus
Roundnet Raccoons
info
This year, Fabi set a clear goal right from the start: World Championships 2024 in London! As a veteran of the German roundnet elite he still convinces with extreme power in serves and finishes, but this year he has also proven his athletic skills in defense several times! Fabi's mental strength will be an essential part of our recipe for success at the World Cup and if he even hits a reverse in the tournament this year, then nothing stands in the way of the title ru close
Lukas Eisenträger
Roundnet 069
info
If anyone is surprised that Lukas is representing Germany at worlds, they clearly know nothing about the sport! He has been on top of European Roundnet for many years, with Corona taking away his chance to compete at the first Roundnet World Championship in 2022. But Lukas has come back stronger than ever and is out for blood with his team partner Paul, eager to put a stop to the North Americans dominating the peak of Roundnet. If one team can do it, it's Lukas with Paul. close

Coaches

Jan Petersen
Roundnet Sharks Kiel
info
After the all-round success of the 2022 World Championships in Molenheide and winning the 2023 European Championships, the coaching team is once again undergoing some major changes, but one important constant in the team remains: JP! The northern light from Kiel is held in high regard by Germany's top players in his role as coach. Anyone who has had the pleasure of experiencing his coaching will have quickly noticed that JP is a tactical genius with a focused, analytical eye. With his authenticity and 100% commitment, he succeeds in offering constructive criticism and encouragement to the players. But he has also been shining as a player since 2022 with different playing partners at the highest level of play in Germany with outstanding placings. Due to his repeatedly proven expertise and reliability as well as his valuable experience as a national coach in recent years, we are very pleased to have Jan on board in the future. close
Christin Gerecke
Roundnet Hildesheim
info
With Christin as national coach, the federation landed an absolute stroke of luck last year. Not only did she prove her organizational skills in her work in the league department and was able to bring them to the national team, but she also showed what she is capable of with many placings on the podium and a strong 4th place at the German Championships in 2023. The Hildesheim native knows her way around both the women's and mixed game and was able to demonstrate her roundnet expertise at the European Championships, as well as her exemplary connection with the players, who hold her in high regard. It was not least because of her that the title was brought to Germany last year, and this year she is bringing all her skills to bear to help the national team on its way to the World Championships. close
Clemens von Hänisch
1. Roundnet Club Köln
info
The 2021 German Champion was already a national player at the 2022 World Cup in Belgium. With around 7 years of roundnet experience, Clemens has already experienced almost everything our young sport has to offer. The old master is known to have an eye for technique, is tactically well versed in all aspects of the game and proves to the next generation from time to time at tournaments how the game works. As a coach at the 1st Roundnet Club Cologne for many years, the main organizer of the 1st Coach Camp 2021 and with his specialist knowledge in the areas of nutrition, prevention, rehabilitation and athletics, he brings everything you could wish for in a national coach. close
Rosa Frietsch Musulin
Karlsruher Kojoten
info
With Rosa, a second member of the 2022 national team is now part of the coaching team. In addition to her many years of experience as one of Germany's top players, she can also rely on her experience in competitive sports as a lacrosse player in the 1st Bundesliga. Since 2021, she has been gaining coaching experience as a coach in the Karlsruhe community and has contributed a lot to Karlsruhe not only being one of the most active and strongest developing communities, but also being firmly anchored in the 1st Bundesliga. She knows the German roundnet scene inside and out, and with her international experience she will be immensely valuable to the coaching team. close
Sascha Lang
1. Roundnet-Verein Mainz e.V.
info
For years, Sascha was part of the board of the 1st Roundnet Club Mainz. He shapes and promotes one of the most active communities in Germany, which not only managed to make it into the 1st Bundesliga, but will also host the German Championships in 2024. As an instructor at the Trainer Camp 2023, he passed on his technical and tactical knowledge, which makes him one of Germany's top players, to the next generation. This year, he is putting his own ambitions on hold and putting his skills at the disposal of the national team instead. With his analytical eye and organizational talent, there is no doubt that our roundnet nerd will be a very important part of the team. close
Etienne Prison
Roundnet Raccoons
info
Our roundnet physio was already an important pillar of the national team in 2022 and 2023. Unbroken in his desire to help the team and still passionate about the sport, we are overjoyed to have Etienne on board again this year. His support of the players has contributed massively to the successes of recent years and will continue to be part of the recipe for success in the future. close
Kevin Sauer
RCB Spikings
info
Having only been active as a player since 2023, the newcomer from Frankfurt may not yet be a household name to some. However, with his voluntary work for the Competitive Sports Department and his easy-going manner, he has integrated himself directly into the association and made a name for himself. As an instructor at the Coach Camp 2023, he contributed his expertise, which he uses on a daily basis as an athletics trainer and senior sports scientist at FSV Frankfurt's youth youth football performance center. His know-how will now also help Germany's top players to take their game to the next level and will be a great help to the team on the way to the World Cup. close
