Fall practices are on Wednesdays @6pm - Drop-ins Welcome!
This weekend, on Thanksgiving Day, Canadians across the country celebrate the harvest and blessings of the past year. In Montreal, members of the handball club Celtique de Montreal celebrate in their own special way by hosting their annual Thanksgiving tournament, Tournoi de l’Action de Grâce 2015.
This year, Boston Team Handball will join the fun by sending a men's team to participate at the tournament, despite having held only two practices. Several teams from the US and Canada compete at what has become a great annual handball event. This year, there will be 10 men's teams and 7 women's teams from Quebec, Ontario, Massachusetts, New York. The games start on Saturday at 8:30am and conclude at the end of Sunday.
For more information on the tournament visit the Celtique de Montreal club website.
Beach handball is in full swing in Boston. Thanks to the cooperative weather, players of the Boston Team Handball club will be playing beach handball for the 8th consecutive weekend at Revere Beach, this weekend.
Beach Handball is a variation of indoor team handball that is played on sand. Unlike the indoor version, defense in beach handball is with minimal contact. On the offensive end, it can be quite spectacular. Players often attempt to earn 2 points per attack, by scoring goals 'in style' - e.g. from an alliup, or after a 360 degree rotation in the air. Needless to say, it is also a phenomenal workout with plenty of sprinting on sand.
Everyone is welcome to drop by and join in on the fun. The beach sessions usually start around 10am and last until 2pm, and the Boston Team Handball crowd is one of the most diverse and welcoming group of athletes you'll find around.
