For almost two decades, the beach tournaments in groblangheim have been a fixed date in the calendar of everyone interested in handball in the district. Last weekend was the time again. On saturday the men went hunting for titles, on sunday the women. At the same time the competitions took place on grass, so there was something for every handball lover.
The responsible persons drew a very favorable conclusion at the end: "once again everything worked out wonderfully". We even had a lot of luck with the weather. Sunday morning it drizzled a little bit, but nobody was bothered by that, the tournament was played continuously", stefan herrmann was pleased with the smooth running of the event. Already for the second time the tournament was held as part of the BW-open, which means that the participating teams in groblangheim could also secure points for the southern german championship.
A good mix
"We had a really good mixture of spab teams and teams that were interested in the sporting incentive. Among others, the reigning south german champion also competed in the men's competition. In the final games there was therefore also really good beach handball to see with many "kempatoren", described herrmann.
That the atmosphere in groblangheim is right was once again shown by the field of participants. Teams from stuttgart, frankfurt, fulda and last but not least nurnberg made the journey again to be part of the tournament. Perfect organization, a great atmosphere and the supporting program once again made the weekend a great experience.
Party and games
"Most of the participants camped here again. Saturday evening the band apple juice played, there was a cocktail bar and a bonfire outside. So there was something for everyone and so far we have received only positive reactions", said herrmann. Besides the party on saturday evening there were of course also sporting successes to celebrate.
While the reigning southern german champions, the SG schurwald, won the men's tournament in groblangheim for the first time after a second place the year before, two local heroes decided the women's title between themselves. In the final, the teams of TV sthashausen and TV groblangheim met each other. In the end, the TVE decided the final game in two tight halftimes for themselves and secured the cup.
In view of the smooth course of the tournament, however, one could also be extremely satisfied on the groblangheim side.
