Time for some friendly competition between all our Handball County Boards!
As part of our ongoing "Summer Series 2021", GAA Handball will be running a competition between all counties to increase the visibility of Handball nationwide. The challenge is simple....
"See how many new 1-Wall Courts you can get lined out/constructed in GAA Clubs, on Ball Walls, in Community Halls, in Schools, etc., by the end of September."
A weighted scoring system will be in place (as detailed below), and a League Table will be updated and released regularly across GAA Handball Social Media platforms to add to the competition and pride!
- Prizes of Equipment Grants & Elite Coaching Sessions (+ much more) will on offer to the Counties/Clubs who have made the biggest effort at the end of the summer.
- GAA Handball strongly encourage all Counties to throw their weight behind this challenge for the benefit of our sport as a whole.
- GAA Handball will provide complimentary branded wall stickers and a starter pack for any Club/School who develops new Handball Walls as part of this initiative.
- Submit entries of new courts via email to National Development Officer Darragh Daly (firstname.lastname@example.org) alongside picture proof.
- "Developing a Court" can be as simple as marking out a court on an existing flat wall/floor space.
- Potential targets could be Ball Walls in GAA Clubs.
- In many cases, GAA Clubs & Schools are simply not aware of how easy and cost effective it is to develop Handball Walls, so by simply reaching out you increase the likelihood of development considerably.
