Tomas Kmet - A Captain for All Seasons

Kmet-art

Tomas Kmet is and has always been considered as stabilizing element in his team, someone who does not stick out through show but through performance. The big assets of the 2.02m-giant who is able to give a game the decisive spin, are his powerful attack, hard work, ambition and an uncompromising will to win.

When Tomas Kmet was 12 years old he started to play volleyball for a very simple reason: Like so many Slovakian children at his age he loved ice hockey, but his parents did not have enough money to buy all the equipment necessary for playing ice hockey. Thus Tomas had to choose a different sport – and eventually seized the opportunity that lay before him.

After intensive education and training at a volleyball boarding school, he gained his first experience as player for Petrochema Dubova. In 2001 he won the Slovakian championship for the first time. In 2003 he went to play in the Polish top league to play for Gwardia Wroclaw. He also wore the team jersey of Kedzierzyn until 2006 when the Vienna hotVolleys took notice of him due to his strong performances. From 2006 onwards until 2010 Tomas Kmet played for the Viennese team only with the interruption of one season (2008/09 Castellana Grotte of the second Italian league).

In the team of the Vienna hotVolleys he won the Austrian championship twice until he made a big step: Tomas Kmet concluded a contract with the German vice-champion Unterhaching and played in the Champions League like he already did with the Viennese team. Nevertheless, the expected big success did not come: the team won the German cup twice and made it until the 12-team play-off phase in the Champions League but in the German league they dropped out already in the semi-finals – even though Tomas Kmet was the last one to be blamed for this defeat.

Since the end of last season the chapter Unterhaching has been closed for the Slovakian team player. To date the father of a small boy, who is also studying business administration and management in Bratislava, does not have a new team. This is bitter for the disintegrating team of Unterhaching but good for potentially interested parties. Mihai Paduretu, the coach of Unterhaching enthuses about Kmet:  “Some just have the game in their blood.”
