Foreword- President of BHC Zagreb

Dear Beach handball friends,  
we are closing to the eleventh edition of Jarun cup, the biggest Croatian beach handball tournament, which will be held from 27th of April until 1st of May 2018. We expect this beach handball tournament to be an extraordinary event, involving teams and official persons from many European nations. 

Numbers from the last year edition of the tournament (64 teams in all categories, 151 played games, around 500 participants from 11 European countries, 50 volunteers helping in the tournament organization) confirmed that Jarun cup beach handball tournament is constantly growing and and our goal is to improve it a little bit more every year.

Thanks to the European beach handball championship, held in Zagreb in 2017., another beach handball court was built, which will enable us to play simultaneously at 4 courts, spreading the beach handball word more efficiently among the children and seniors as well.

Also, we are planning to increase the number of organizational EBT points. Last year we ensured 289 organizational EBT points and this year we expect around 300 EBT points.

Therefore, on behalf of the Organizational board of Jarun cup and Academic beach handball club Zagreb, I would like to invite the participants, i.e. referees, delegates, team officials, technical officials, staff, volunteers to become the part of our Summer story at the end of April.

In the end of this foreword, I hope that you will recognize our efforts to popularize our sport and I hope that we will see you soon, so we could demonstrate the beauty of beach handball to the spectators (on the venue, via internet stream or via national TV transmission), opening the new outdoor EBT (European beach handball tour) season the best way we can. Looking forward to see you soon.
