Foreword from the President of the Organizational board

OM Matija SulcDear Beach handball friends,   

the twelfth edition of Jarun cup, the biggest Croatian beach handball tournament, which will be held from 26th of April until 1st of May 2019, is coming soon. 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 (75 teams in all categories, 221 played games, around 650 participants from 13 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., one another beach handball court was built, which enabled 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 370 organizational EBT points and this year we expect to increase it even more. Besides the competition, we are planning to organize the beach handball meeting with respectable speakers. We will also try to include one-day trip to Plitvice Lakes for all  interested participants.

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.


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