In the series of the articles about the official persons that will be part of our Summer story, on Jarun cup 2015, we bring the interview with the famous Hungarian beach handball couple, Mr Palkovits and Mr. Szilvasi.
Please, introduce yourself (main information). How long are you involved to the (beach)handball activities?
Gabor: Handball and beachhandball were always part of my life, considered as my second „job“. I started playing handball in '99 and when beachhandball was introduced in my country, I fell in love immediately. Besides playing I started to be a referee in 2003 and I joined beachhandball as an official in 2008. From the very beginning I go from tournaments to tournaments with David. In private I work as an HR Director for a multinational company called Xerox.
David: In 2000 I started as an indoor referee and since 2005 I'm actively involved in all beachhandball activities. From 2008 with Gábor we participated numerous domestic and international tournaments, visiting many interesting places in Europe. Regarding the number of matches we whistled, it is hard to count but it should be close to 1000. Apart from handball in everyday's life I'm working for Vodafone as a Billing Manager.
What are your greatest achievments so far? Where did you whistle so far and describe us shortly the best game you were part of. Is there any match you wish that you didn't whistle maybe ;) ?

Jarun Cup 2015 is the eighth edition of the beach handball tournament organized by Academic beach handball club Zagreb.Given the fact that each year was organizationally better that the previous one, the Organizational board decided to register the tournament as a part of the European beach handball tour.
Matija Šulc, the Organization commitee director, shortly commented this step: This is a good thing for all ebt participants, especially because of the fact that until now there were no early outdoor EBT tournaments in the schedule. With this tournament, official EBT season became longe which gives another chance to the teams to compete and try to do their best. Also, I think that this will be a great chance for the EBT Masters finals participants to prepare on time for the tournament which will be held in Budaors at the end of May. I use the opportunity to invite all beach handball teams to participate and became a part of our summer story.
In the period from first to third of May in 2015, the famous and traditional beach handball tournament, Jarun cup, will be organized by Academic beach handball club Zagreb. The largest Croatian tournament will host the best beach handball players among Croatia and hopefully Europe and open the new official beach handball European outdoor season.
