The IWBF Europe Executive Council decided in its meeting in Frankfurt, Germany, of November 21th, 2015, to award Mr. Jan BERTELING the HONORARY MEMBERSHIP of IWBF Europe.

In 1999, Jan BERTELING was elected as President. In 2015, he decided to step down, after so many years of excellent service to wheelchair basketball in general and to the European federations and clubs in particular. Not only for our zone, but also for IWBF he played his part in the board to let wheelchair basketball become the most important team sport for disabled, with his broad governing experience in basketball, his connections in FIBA and his huge international network.

IWBF Europe acknowledges and will always remember the great contributions that Jan BERTELING made to the organisation and development of wheelchair basketball in Europe.
