DUBRAVA @ EBT MASTERS FINALS

0057 Thesaloniki16Today we have recieved good news from the European handball organization. They have comfirmed that Beach handball club Dubrava will participate in the EBT Masters Finals in May which are held in Greece. At the Avant Gard Sports Center courts in Thessaloniki, ten male and female teams, who secured enough points through the EBT tour will participate in the tournament with same goal: to be on the top of the Europe.

 

It is worth mentioning that BHC Dubrava did not secure this position by default. Croatian champions and the winners of all four tournaments on which they had participated have finished 9th on the EBT ranking list (Detono Zagreb was 7th so they had secured automatic their place on tournament). We were invited to participate after one team has cancelled the participation.

 

Considering there is only 45 days till the competition, the groups are known. BHC Dubrava will start the cup on the 19th of May against home representatives, A.C. Spartacus Goalbet , and the second game will be against CBP Algeciras from Spain. On the second day we finish the group games with matches against OVB Beach Girls from Hungary and Poland's Reflex AZS AWF Volkswagen Poznan. On the final day semifinals and final ranking matches will be played.

Other in female, Croatia will also have two teams in the male tour - Detono Zagreb (defending Champion) and Beach handball club Sesvete, Masters debutants

AIMING AT FURTHER DEVELOPMENT

0020 novi grb KRPMarch is the month when all of our players are far from the excitement beach handball brings. Although their current activities revolve around indoor handball,our players don't forget easily what awaits home and all over Europe on sand courts. Last week,  just under two months until the first tournament, ten of our members, mostly players, participated in a meeting whose purpose was to spark some new ideas and projects which would help our club evolve into a more developed, efficient and competitive club.

"We have come to a phase where our sports success supersedes our organizational level. I would dare to say that,result-wise,we have become a very formidable club,even for european standards. But for keeping that quality and even taking a step forward we will need more activity logistically. During that four-hour meeting we've had quite a few interesting suggestions and ideas that will assist in that goal." said Ivan Dumenčić, one of the founders and the club secretary.

One of our most vital projects is the creation of a youth academy, both male and female. In our very begginings we had male teams consisting of boys born in '92. and '94. which had a lot of success.

MASTERS IS GOING TO BE HELD IN GREECE AGAIN

0007 zene BHSecond time in three years, greek town Thessaloniki will be host of EBT Masters finals series. Greek sand was happy place for Detono Zagreb in mens, and OVB Beach girls in female category two years ago, and now we have to see what will happen in period from 20th to 22nd May 2016. Defending champions are Detono Zagreb (6th time champions) and Agenta Girls. Unfortunatelly, our female team will not participate in Thessaloniki, even they desirve it with quallity. Our girls won first places at all four EBT tournament last summer, but that wasn't enough to collect suficiant number of point to travel to Greece.

 

2015. - THE MOST SUCCESSFULL YEAR

0038 PRVAKINJEEven though we are already in 2016, it is appropriate to look back and say few words about year behind us. 2015 was the most successfull year since we established our beach handball club in 2010. We are all hoping that 2016 will be similar by achievements like it was in last year. Let's take a look.

We are very proud of our female team who took our first title of Croatian champions by winning all three championships tournaments.They done it with score of only one defeat through whole season what is amazing achievement. Besides that, our girls have won Zagreb league 2015 for second time after 2011. But that is not the end of our golden medals in 2015. After european championship, our girls went to Hungary at Balaton Open. In very strong competition, Panthers took a new title of best female team.

As a champions of Croatia, our girls went to Champions Cup on Gran Canaria. There they played against best european teams, chamapions of their nations. Dubrava was 4th team of group A behind Skrim Kongsberg, OVB Beach Girls and 100 Ondas and in front of Beachqueens and Strandgefluster Minden. After defeat in quarterfinal, our girls finnished 7th best female team in Europe what si great success for our club.

Our mens team didn't have that good season. Injuries of few key players was too big loss for our young team, so we have to be satisfied by reaching third place in croatian championship. We are expecting much better results of our mens team in 2016.

We can not forget our national team. Beach handball club Dubrava had 4 representatives at european beachhandball championship in Lloret de Mar, Spain. Men's national team reach fourth consecutive gold medal with ours Ivan Dumenčić and Josip Jurić Grgić, both as a specialists. Our women's team finnished competiton at 9th place. Our wings Kristina Smiljanić and Ria Haček were part of the result.
