Trust Co-Ordinating Ipswich Handball Launch
Wednesday, 16th Jan 2013 12:10
The ITFC Charitable Trust is co-ordinating the launch of Ipswich Handball at Suffolk One on Wednesday 23rd January (from 6.15pm). Everyone is welcome to come along and have a go at the sport which is popular throughout Europe and drew big crowds at last summer’s London Olympics.
The evening features an exhibition match, while those attending can have a go at the handball skillshot. Team GB Olympian and Sporting Champion Louise Jukes will be present as a VIP guest.
Dave Hendrick, who is in charge of the project, said: “The match will be between Ipswich Select and Essex Blades and will be a really exciting start to the evening’s events.
“There’s an opportunity for people of all abilities to join in and try handball for themselves. We are delighted to have Louise Jukes joining us on the night and she will be meeting fans and chatting about her Olympic experiences.”
The launch of Ipswich Handball is being co-ordinated by ITFC Charitable Trust coaches and is funded by Sport England’s Olympic Legacy project, Sportivate, which is driven locally by Suffolk Sport.
Hendrick added: “This is part of a much larger project to form a league for 14-25-year-olds. Work in this area has already begun with four high schools already on board.
“The coaches from the ITFC Charitable Trust have been trained to take handball out into the wider community via schools to work with us in our endeavour to help make Suffolk one of the most active counties in 2013.”
For more details about the Ipswich Handball launch evening or the new Ipswich Handball weekly training sessions, every Wednesday from 6.15pm, contact Dave Hendrick from England Handball on 07990 744717 or email email@example.com.

Luke Chambers Will Be a Town Legend by Pickersblue22
As one of the greatest leaders in Premier League history announces he is leaving English football a the end of the season, I think it appropriate to pay tribute to our very own Captain Fantastic.
Is the Game Now Too Rich for Marcus Evans? by itfcjoe
As Ipswich look to be leaving the January transfer window with a weaker squad than the one they entered it with, it leads me to question what is Marcus Evans’s plan for the football club.
Time for a Break? by Bluetaff
As strong winds and torrential rain batter the UK, we enjoy again another wet and dreary winter. Long gone are the visions of a white and frosty Christmas so often played out in annual offerings from Hollywood.
The 'Exciting and Unpredictable' Championship! by TimS
Well done to Jolly Journo! I sympathised with much of what you wrote this week, and the some of the vitriol that came in response was embarrassing for this great club.
