Dear beach handball friends,

the 16th edition of Jarun Cup, one of the biggest European beach handball tournaments, which will be held from April 27 to May 1, 2024, is coming soon. We expect this beach handball tournament to be an exceptional event with teams and officials from many European nations participating.

The numbers of the last edition of the tournaments (more than 70 teams and 700 participants from 17 countries, 50 volunteers who helped to organize the tournament, as well as the officials and the members of the organizing committee) have confirmed that Jarun Cup is recognized by the teams and the beach handball enthusiasts as one of the best beach handball EBT events.

Our sports complex at Jarun Lake consists of 4 beach handball courts, where we were able to play more than 200 matches during the tournament.

Also, our plan for this year is to further increase the quality of tournaments while staying in the top 5 of European tournaments. Therefore, on behalf of the Jarun Cup Beach Handball Tournament Organizing Committee and Academic Beach Handball Club Zagreb, I would like to invite participants, i.e. referees, delegates, team officials, technical officials, staff and volunteers to become part of our Summer story at the end of April 2024. Furthermore, it will be a great opportunity to open outdoor beach handball season, before the upcoming competitions such as EBT Finals in France, World Beach Handball Championships in China, and many other EBT tournaments. I hope you will recognize our efforts to popularize beach handball and I hope to see you again soon so that we can open the new EBT season as best we can, having fun and showing the most beautiful sport to the spectators (on-site, via internet stream or via TV broadcast). We look forward to seeing you soon!

Matija Šulc, mag. ing.
President of ABHC Zagreb
