Story

Have you heard of handball? It's an Olympic Sport in which Great Britain actually took part in at the 2012 London Games. Handball is the most exciting, high scoring, action packed team sport that can be played anywhere by anyone. It is infectious! 15 million people play handball worldwide.

As a group of parents we have set up this page to ask for your help. All our son's are training hard as members of the M18's Great Britain Handball Team. All the lads are self-funded (i.e. parents pay for everything) we have and will continue to do our best to support them get to the level that they are now at playing for Great Britain. It's just now we need a little help, as our personal funds are running dry. You, our supporters have helped immensely by aiding the team to get to their first International games in Austria and play in the European Handball Federation (EHF) Men's Championships which were held in August 2018. Handball is a madly popular sport in Europe and as group of parents and young people who love the sport, we want to make it that popular in the U.K. Taking part in International Competitions like this is not only vital in their development, and gives them the opportunity to play against teams who have been reared on hanbdall since being youngsters, but is also a visual platform for other countries to see the talent our boys have and how great our GB players are and how keen we are to be part of this great sport. If you can, please help us make this possible every penny helps so please don't leave this page thinking you have to give £'s £'s£'s £'s we are grateful for any help at all - every penny counts!. Thank you for taking the time to read this page and thank you for supporting if you are able to. Our sons are benefitting from the excellent coaching of London 2012 Olympian , Ciaran Williams and we have high hopes for their future development. As an excellent result of the team taking part in the EHF Championships, the will be in action again soon when they travel to Portugal for a training camp in September, they will then take part in the IHF Trophy in Kosovo at the end of October and so we contiune to fundraise for this and future trips. Any help which you are able to give will be very much appreciated. Thank you for your support as without you we couldn't have begun this journey.

    Well the GBM18 played their first game against GC Tarouca in Portugal last night at 10pm! The timing didn’t seem to affect their performance though - leading at at half time 14-10 and finally securing the game at full time by 26-21!! The team were reported to be strong in defence - let’s hope that their performance remains strong in their 2nd game today @ 1pm against Sao Barnardo @ 13.00 Good luck guys! 🇬🇧 🤾🏿‍♂️
