After competing with other pro athletes during the summer she knew that was the level she wanted, and could be playing at, she just needed to be patient.
Fellow Premier League athlete and Premier Cup Champion Asli Ersozoglu landed her first contract earlier in the summer with Brøndby Volleyball Klub, and when her team started looking for a new setter she immediately recommended Betteridge. An opportunity came up to travel to Denmark to train with the team and see if it was the right fit, and Betteridge jumped on the chance to start her dream.
“I’d been working toward the goal of playing overseas for a while, so having the opportunity to go to Copenhagen was more than exciting. I went to Denmark on a trial and got to experience the volleyball and the life for a week before signing While that certainly came with some pressures, it allowed me to completely embrace the experience, take every day as it came, and both challenge myself and prove to myself, that I deserved to be here,” she says.
