Club championships return to Gold Coast

The 2022 Australia and Oceania Handball Club Championships are set to begin on 30 June, in Gold Coast.

Nine men’s and five women’s clubs, from Australia and abroad, are vying for this year’s title.

For the first time in the competition’s history, a men’s club from Singapore will participate in the event. Willows HC has been included in the tournament as a wild card and will start their preliminary round in Group 1, alongside last year’s champions, University of Queensland HC.

The men’s preliminary round will be split into two groups, with the top two teams advancing into the semi-final.

In the women’s competition, all five teams will compete in one preliminary group, then the two top teams will advance into the final.

The top team in the men’s and women’s divisions will qualify for the 2022 IHF Super Globe, which brings together the top continental clubs around the world.
