UL Handball on top of the world

30, Mar | 17:06 | Posted By: Handball (Request Membership)

It was an incredible year for the UL Wolves Handball Club as they established themselves as one of the most successful clubs around the world with a series of dominant displays both nationally and internationally. The club won 58 medals in major Irish competitions and secured another 60 on the world stage across 10 international tournaments. This spectacular success was rewarded with the ‘Club of the Year’ award at the annual UL Clubs & Socs Ball, the first time the club has claimed this award. This was followed by another historic moment for the handball club as a student referendum was passed which will lead to the construction of handball alleys on campus to round off one of the most astonishing years in the handball club’s existence. It was an exciting year for all members of the club and this year promises to be the same.

 

The year started in the surprisingly warm surroundings of University of Calgary, Canada and ended on a surprisingly warm day on the campus of University of Limerick with numerous stops along the way. The last year included trips to Canada, Spain, Belgium, The Netherlands, UK, France, USA and Italy for our members as the club strived to expand our international connections. The trips included the World Handball Championships, five European Pro Tour stops, the World Handball Collegiates and several pro tournaments in USA. The trips all included a chance to explore the local areas and an exciting opportunity to try the local versions of handball in the European countries. The trips have also provided a chance to develop personal connections with players around the world with UL Wolves players being invited to local tournaments in Italy, Spain and the national Dutch handball championships following club trips in the past year. The club is planning trips to Spain, Belgium, The Netherlands, France, USA, Italy and Canada over the next year again to further enhance our international connections as well as the local tournaments to which we have been invited.

 

The club also participated in numerous tournaments around Ireland with trips to Galway, Kilkenny, Wexford, Cork, Cavan, Belfast, Dublin, Aran Islands and Achill Island among several others. This provided a great opportunity for our members to see different parts of Ireland and meet students from other colleges and clubs throughout the country. These weekends away provide some excellent opportunities for team bonding between old and new members and establish long-lasting friendships. The club also set up a series of tournaments and leagues for our members to gain experience and develop their skills against other experienced players. The Limerick Metropolitan Handball Series is one of the biggest series of handball tournaments in the world and is a great opportunity for players of all abilities to improve their game.
