Handball Is Back!

Monday September 20th sees the return of indoor sports and activities for groups and Olympic Handball is 1 of them!

It is a long time since the board of the IOHA decided to cancel the Cup weekend and suspend the league in early March 2020 due to the unfolding concern surrounding the Covid-19 virus. Little did we know then that it would be 18 months till we would be able to return to the handball court. There has been many false dawns but handball is finally back and back to stay!

Each Club was asked to nominate at least one Covid-19 Officer who underwent the Sport Ireland developed training to enable a safe return to the sport.

The IOHA’s Covid-19 subcommittee has been in close contact with all clubs and the Sport Ireland approved protocols have been circulated to all Clubs ahead of September 20th.
