Due to the big interest of clubs we have to inform you that this time the application time is limited as only the first eight (8) registered teams will be able to play in each category.

In addition to handball pleasures we offer to young handball players and coaches a rich evening entertainment programme: opening ceremony, Disco party, karaoke, social evening for coaches and referees. Our wish is that during the tournament many new friendships can arise. Let the tournament be the best occasion for socializing, entertainment and new friendships.
