The Mayo Handball and subsequently the Connacht Handball competitions will be upon us soon so anyone wishing to enter would need to be preparing now.

Girls’ singles under 11

Girls’ doubles under 11

Boys’ singles under 11

Boys’ doubles under 11


Girls’ singles under 13

Girls’ doubles under 13

A date for the Mayo finals to follow soon

The Connacht finals of the Cumann na mBunscol Challenger 2 Handball Competition (U11 & U13) will be played in:

 Moycullen Handball Club, Moycullen, Co. Galway on Sunday the 07/02/16 starting at 10am.

NB: Only 1 entry per category per school, you cannot have 2 single boys or girls at either under 11 or under 13 or enter 2 teams in any of the doubles events.

This is a handball rule and is beyond our control, regular entrants will be familiar with it.

In the case of you having multiple entrants, schools will need to have play offs within their own school or club to select their best players to play in the above grades on the day of the competition.

Handball Rules should be explained to the competitors before the day of the competition and players should be familiar with at least the basics of the game.
