London Teams Win Through To 2014 British University Championship Finals
London teams won through to the Championship Finals of the Association of British University Handball Clubs (ABUHC) competition which will take place over the weekend of March 8 and March 9 at SportHouse in Barking, London.
Twenty university teams produced scintillating, exciting, skillful Handball performances in both the women’s and men’s competitions played over two days in an excellent Southern regional tournament. Universities entered fewer second teams in order to ensure a full bench was available for selection for the all important knock out phase of the competition and this undoubtedly added to the quality and atmosphere for the final matches.
Imperial College won the Southern region contest and will be joined in the finals of the men’s competition by University College London. In the women’s competition Middlesex University won all their matches and will be joined by Brunel University and the University of East London.
The groups for the National Championship Finals can be found here.
Congratulations to all the teams that took part and to the ABUHC organising committee.
