That's how sporty our school management Bettina Rollersbroich is

Even though sport does not play a role in her main job as school management of our faculty: In her private life, Bettina Rollersbroich's life revolves around volleyball. Ever since the 52-year-old came to team sports at the end of the 1970s following a tip from her sports teacher, she has stuck with it. Until 2009 she played for the Ladies in Black Aachen as Libera (an extremely responsible position within the team) even in the 1st Bundesliga, after further stations currently with SV Neptun/SG Aachen. "The ball has always fascinated me", Rollersbroich says.

Rollersbroich completed her sports studies at the German Sport University Cologne with a diploma ("But I didn't want to become a teacher!"). After studying to become a qualified public administration specialist in Cologne, she came to the RWTH Aachen in 1997. Since then she has continued her passion as a hobby, a total of seven German championship titles in senior sports (twice in the hall and five times in beach volleyball) are on her account. In 2019 she became vice world champion as part of the Ü50 indoor national team in the USA. "That was a real highlight, only against the hosts we had to admit defeat in the tie break in the final". Another highlight was certainly the election of the Sportswoman of the Year 2019 in the district of Düren.

Although Rollersbroich had been thinking about quitting since the beginning of the year, partly because of the difficult corona conditions, she and her partner Ute Frantzen were able to win first place again at the German Beach Volleyball Championships 2020 in Berlin. "But now it's enough, I've achieved everything I could in volleyball," she says, "maybe I'll try table tennis next.”
