Next up Vipers Kristiansand for Merel Freriks

Vipers Kristiansand brings together quiet a few players from the Netherlands for next season. Recently the Norwegian champion introduced Merel Freriks with a two-year-contract.

As Vipers aim to strengthen their position to compete for further titles Freriks possess essential pivot qualities.

The last season of her four-year-stint in Brest Bretagne was interrupted by a knee injury, thus Freriks arrives at Kristiansand with obvious inspiration to return in play.

On the position of the 26-year-old, Lysa Tchaptchet Defo is definitely going to Odense HB. Ana Debelic has been out for a while for family and injury reason and Luisa Schulze is doubtful for a stay in Vipers in 2024/25, according to TV2 Norway.

Freriks joins newcomers Mia Emmenegger, Nina Koppang and Silje Solberg-Østhassel plus national team colleague Larissa Nusser. Lois Abbingh is already established in Vipers back court setup.
