IRELAND vs DIHC 30:35

Today our boys played a friendly match against Irish National Team as part of their training camp in Gormanstown. Although boys arrived with just 9 players they put on a great show and won the match 30:35. With a few players not yet back from holidays some new members showed good skills ou our side today and we are very happy they managed to fit in the squad. Piero Forno (Chile), Matija Jelić (Croatia), Julien Nedelec (France) and our long “lost brother” Marius Deac who was out last season due to work obligations are the first newcomers in the team for this coming 2018/19 season. We have lots of time untill the beginning of the season and we are looking forward to working hard for the upcoming season and try to defend our title.

The 5th of December, DIHC traveled to Carlow to play against the male and female team from Carlow IT.
Carlow IT is a fairly new team but was still able to muster a solid female team with 10+ players and a male team with 15+ players. The court was short, similar to the UCD court, so booth teams were struggling with the short stint on fast breaks.

Key take away communicated by James is that Olympic Handball is a fast ball sport with a quite a few similarities with GAA football but has the great advantage – in Ireland – to be played indoor! lol…

Tomas uses the opportunity to welcome any new players regardless of their age or level. Everyone is welcome to Dublin International Hanball Club!
