One of the most serious project in Beach Handball history is on the way! EBT “Split Calling” will be organised in beautiful city on Adriatic coast in period – July 22 – July 27. Croatian city of Split which gave to our sports the names of Ivano Balic and Petar Metlicic will get a strong tournament in Beach Handball in the middle of summer touristic season. Organizers believe that “Split Calling” will be worldwide attraction in the first year:
– We want to make one of the biggest Beach Handball events in Europe. Tournament will be organised in the middle of the touristic season, what is a great oppportunity for all handball lovers to have fun, play handball and spend unforgetable summer at the seaside. We expect over 1000 participants in July and if you know that Split is crowded by tourist, our prediction is that a few thousands of people will be daily in our handball complex which will take place near beach – at tennis centre – says Mario Caljkusic, the main organiser of “Split calling” and add:
– We solved all the necessary things. Accomodation, transport and playing venues are ready. We want to make an amazing sports, handball story, to make a strong effect in our community, but also to present beach handball as a sports discipline, which is still also some kind of a mystery for handball people.
PRIZE FUND – 6.000 EUR
– We have great expectations from the tournament. Our prizes for the best teams will be one of the biggest in the history of Beach Handball. Tournament is in the hands of experienced Beach handball activists as Sasa Kuburovic and Iva Perica. We will have over 30 members of organisation staff.
There is interest in the tournament at all meridians…
– Our website had 5.000 visits in just 15 days from all the continents. People are interested to come and try something new. That will be the new and unique handball experience. Summer, sun, beach, sea… – concluded Caljkusic.
