Handball ladies capture trophy

UCLan's Handball teams
UCLan's Handball teams put on an impressive show in a thrilling tournament at Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre.

Teams from Lancaster, Bangor and Huddersfield joined UCLan for the event, which ended with silverware for our Women’s team and a runners-up finish for the Men.

With UCLan working hard towards establishing Handball as a recognised BUCS sport, club chairman Nick Gaunt was delighted with the tournament's success.

"We’ve not heard from BUCS whether Handball will be given more funding in the coming years, but I'm hopeful the more tournaments universities arrange, the more we'll be taken notice of," said Nick.

"There are a lot of more well-known, well-funded sports out there, but for clubs who are struggling to keep going the lack of funds can really hinder the amount of opportunities available to them.

"Both our teams played extremely well and I'd also like to say thank you to all the other teams for attending and boosting the publicity of the sport in their respective universities."

For further details about the club and how to get involved please email Nick.
