July – Seeking EOIs for NSW Senior teams

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

Senior Nationals is in Perth between October 8-11 this year. Could players who are interested in participating in NSW Senior Men and Senior Women’s teams, and who are financially able to commit to attend, please submit their interest asap?

We need this information to check feasibility to attend and to book training courts. This next few months is a busy time with the SuperGlobe and other national activities underway which may keep some elite players busy so please do indicate interest even if you feel you are still developing as a player as there may be extra opportunity for participation this year. Its a chance to get some great training at a high level in.

Players must be registered with NSW Handball. Players on tourist visas are ineligible, however those on study or work visas are eligible to seek selection to participate.

Please let bronwyn@nswhandball.com.au or scott@nswhandball.com.au know of your interest by August 10.

9:00 Hills v Sydney Uni Blue – referee: Harbourside; Table UTS
10:30 Harbourside v UTS – referee: Hills; Table: Sydney Uni Blue.

The venue for tomorrow’s game is Dural Sport & Leisure Centre, 1 Pellitt lane, Dural.

July – Saturday July 25 Club games at Dural

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

Change of venue to Dural for Saturday July 25 games!

Please note that games this coming weekend are at Dural Sport & Leisure Centre, 1 Pellitt lane, Dural.

The draw is:
9:00 Hills v Sydney Uni Blue – referee: Gold; Table: UNSW
9:00 Harbourside v UTS – referee: Gold; Table UNSW
10:30 Sydney Uni Gold v UNSW – referee: Hills; Table: Harbourside

There are no women’s matches this week.

Also, please note that each duty requires 2 officials (ie 2 referees and 2 table duty). Recently some clubs have only sent 1 and it is almost impossible to cover this shortfall. We would rather not have to send fines out for missed duties. Please have your officials arrive 15 minutes before the matches are due to commence as court time is tight.
