At the recent IKF U23 WKC it was announced that Henry van Meerten, who had been an IKF referee for many years, would be retiring as an IKF International Referee.
On behalf of the IKF, Secretary General Graham Crafter presented Henry with the IKF Pin of Merit to mark his excellent service to the IKF over such a long period of time.
It was rather fitting that his last match was in the Czech Republic since it was in that country that he refereed his first international match in 2007. His last match was the bronze medal match between the Czech Republic and Germany. Lukas Filip from the Czech Korfball Association also presented Henry with a memento to mark the occasion.
