Szabina Tápai is the host of the Beach Handball World Championship

07 july 2016

- Handball is my life since my childhood, I love the summer version of it as well. I was very happy when beach handball became a sport. I remember there was a summer when we took part in a beach handball tournament in Velence with my teammates from Fehérvár – said Szabina Tápai. – Seeing our national football team’s excellent performance at UEFA EURO 2016, supported by thousands of hungarian fans in France, I wish to our teams the same incredible atmosphere for the World Championship.  For many years Hungary succeds to get top result in beach handball on junior and on senior level as well, therefore I think on home field we can reach the top by winning the gold medal. Let's go, Hungary!

- Szabina is a perfect choice for the host position of the World Championship. She is very well known from the traditional way of handball, a great athlete and can easily identify with the lifestyle what beach handball is all about – said by András Novák, secretary general of Hungarian Handball Federation. – With my colleagues we are working hard to organise a great tournament and looking forward to welcome the best of beach handball at Palatinus beach. The World Championship will be a real summer celebration of this sport, hopefuly with Hungarian success. We welcome everybody at Margaret Island.
