It will be a real challenge for our young team to compete at Masters finals and we can just say that it will be a nice experience for us. We will do our best in order to reach the quarter and semifinal matches-that would be a great thing for this young players.
From the beach handball point of view, it is great that this sport reached another country with great handball history. Few years ago Romanian federation started to invest in beach handball by sending the younger age categories to the European competitions and we can expect their further development.

If you wonder how french handball tournaments look like, if you want to be the part of first in the history French EBT tournament, or you always wanted to visit France - now you have a good reason ;) Below you may find basic information:
Who would have thought, two years ago, when for the first time on the pitch of ŠRC Jarun a foreigner appeared, that this is the beginning of one long and beautiful story that continues today. In 2014, together with AKRP Detono Zagreb players, Polish girl Adriana Chowańska began her first beach handball season. Everything thanks to Erasmus exchange that enabled her to study in Zagreb for summer semester 2014. That time Adriana was a Croatian philology student at the Jagiellonian University (Cracow) and an active player of her university club. Right at the begging of her stay in Croatia she began to look for handball club where would continue trainings and in the same time improve her Croatian. It was the coincidence that led her to our club, which starts the preparations in April.
