Last year tournament reached more than 700 participants (82 teams), and more than 220 games were played during 6 days. We hope that this support will enable us further growing in different segments of the organization.
Member of the Org. board, Matija Sulc, gave his statement:
We are really happy to have the support from our city and we hope that we will continue to develop this young and attractive sport, especially in the moment when we expect that beach handball will become a part of the Olympic family in the near future. Even though this is not financial support, it means a lot to us, because this support contributes to other fields of the organization i.e. writing the project proposals. With the last edition we started with the new contents (beach handball conference and workshop about fair play). So, our duty is to work together and try to promote our sport among youngsters and teach them properly in order to be prepared for the Olympics. That is the reason why I am really happy that above mentioned Institution recognized our effort based on enthusiasm of volunteers, officials, players and Org. board as well.
