The first day of the 15th edition of the Jarun Cup is behind us, and many people have gathered to follow the best actions and teams of this attractive sport. In addition to handball on the sand, the first day of the tournament was also marked by a demonstration training of the HandbALL IN project.

At 14:00 CEST, the referee’s first whistle marked the start of the friendly match between the teams from Norway and France, and the action continued with the matches of the group stage of the competition. On the first day of the tournament, a total of ten matches were played, one of which was part of the national team tournament. The tournament schedule and results are available here.

In addition, the first day of the Jarun Cup was also marked by the participation of the children of the HandbALL IN project, who continue their successful cooperation for the third year in a row. It is a conceptual project of former handball player and national team member Maida Arslanagic, and its goal is the inclusion of children with developmental disabilities in society and sports activities through handball. In addition to indoor handball, the children of HandbALL IN were given the opportunity to participate in sports activities of handball on the sand, and it is the Jarun Cup that offers them this opportunity. On Thursday, April 27, a demonstration training was held in which the children learned the basics of handball on the sand, and at the same time had a lot of fun, as evidenced by the smiles on their faces after the training.2023-04-27 Jarun Cup 2023 day 1 0175.jpg
