Champions Begin Their Defence And 2 Other Matches This Weekend

2014-15 IOHA League Champions, Dublin International Handball Club begin the defence of their title on this the second weekend of the new season.

And if you wanted a difficult start to the new season you couldn’t have picked a more challenging opponent than University College Cork Handball Club on their home court in the Mardyke Arena (Saturday 5 p.m.). Both clubs are bound to have picked up some new signings over the summer to add to the quality in their squads so it will be interesting to see what the result is on Saturday evening.

On Sunday back in Dublin there is a double header of games in the UCD Sports Centre that should appeal to all handball fans. In the 1st game Lughnasa Handball Club take on Astra Handball Club @ 10.00 a.m. , Astra will be keen to kick-start their season after last weeks opening day defeat at home to UCD while Lughnasa make their 1st appearance.

Following that match University College Dublin (UCD) Handball Club will be looking to make full use of home court advantage when they take on Dublin City Handball Club and maintain their winning start to the league while DCHC make their season debut.
