For the first time ever, veterans are allowed to play in the Partille Cup. Relive old good times! The tournament will be played July 4-6.
For the first time ever and due to the 50th anniversary, veterans will be able play in the Partille Cup. Those who played handball in the 70's, 80's or 90's can now experience the youth tournament all over again - as a player. Perhaps the plays will go a bit slower, but still. Gather the old gang that played in the old times, making a nostalgic journey. Or if you never got the chance to attend the tournament when you were young - now you have the chance. Perhaps it's even so you're a bunch of leaders from the same club who want to play yourselves when you're here?
In three days you will play handball in the middle of Gothenburg. The matches are 2 x 15 minutes so be sure to get out in the jogging track right away!
