Successful First Handball Festival

10 teams and eighty U11 and U13 players have attended the first mixed Handball Festival of the season organised by the Malta Handball Association.

There was a great atmosphere at the University Sports Hall where the main emphasis was put on playing, having fun and providing positive experiences which support the development of the young players’ playing behaviour.

This festival was the first opportunity to get young players back to handball after a two-year absence due to the restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Its success came about thanks to the hard work put by all local handball clubs who are investing time and effort in the upbringing of these players and increasing the participation levels in younger age categories which augurs well for the future of handball in Malta.

The next handball festival is scheduled for Sunday 12 December 2021 at the University Sports Hall and starts at 9am.
