Add Chicago Inter to YOUR tournament list.

The Inter of Chicago Team Handball Club hosted its inaugural tournament this past weekend (Oct. 5, 6 and 7). The three day tournament featured men and women teams from West Point, Houston, Chicago and Atlanta. 60 minutes matches, IHF rules and court size. Shiny, clean wooden floors. Professional grade, sturdy goals. Two scoreboards, scorekeepers, PA system, music, fans (cheering and air), stands, trainers, heat and humidity. It was all there.

I was also there. I can tell you, without hesitation, that you should add Chicago to your top 5 MUST ATTEND TOURNAMENTS for 2008.

Chicago is now a hotbed for handball just like Atlanta, Houston, Miami and West Point. The Inter Club features over 80 registered adult players (men and women) who practice three times a week. New players join every week. Having a huge Eastern European community to choose from, the club is set to prosper for years to come.
