Roehampton 12th at National Handball Championships


For the first time the University of Roehampton attended the University Handball Championships. With almost 700 players, 40 men’s and 24 women’s teams Roehampton Women’s Handball was ready to have some fun and play some great matches.

The University Championships were held in Sporthouse, Barking on the weekend of the 2nd/3rd February. With a lot of excitement the nine girls from Roehampton Handball Club met up in the Sporthouse ready to play their first game as a team.

The first game was played against Bedford. This game ended 7-0 in favor to Roehampton. With six teams in every group four more matches was played on Saturday. The Second game Roehampton lost 6-2, a game which was played against Middlesex. Then Roehampton won two games in a row, first against Imperial 10-1 and then against Loughborough 5-2. Against Loughborough Roehampton had one player hurt and a second player became sick. In the last game Roehampton lost against Bath 5-8. In this game Roehampton played with only seven players.

After five matches on Saturday Roehampton were on a split second place in the group. Bath got to the best group because they beat Roehampton by winning their last game.

A social night out was arranged in Barking with all the teams on the Saturday night.

Sunday matches did not go too well and Roehampton came 12th place out of 24. Overall the whole experience was a great first tournament and all the girls found playing handball again thoroughly enjoyable.
