Wellington Open Championship


Beach Handball is back in Wellington for its 9th annual tournament.

If you can catch, throw, run and jump with a ball in hand, then Beach Handball is the sport for you!
The playing area is 12m x 27m. There is a goal at each end.
The game is played 4 against 4 (including goalkeepers).
Normal goals = 1 point.
Spectacular goals = 2 points.
There are 2 x 10 min halves per game.
The rules are fairly simple: Try to biff the ball into the opponent’s goal, but you can involve a lot of tactics!

It’s like Rugby, but faster! Like Waterpolo without the water. Like Beach Volleyball, but more full on!
To make up a team you will need between 6 and 8 of your mates (that will include some subs).
This is a game that anyone can play.
Spectators are of course free! And if you are a true sports fanatic, you will love Beach Handball!

Teams from all over New Zealand will battle it out on the sands of Oriental Bay.
There will be male, female and youth divisions, so anyone can have a go.
