The Road to Slovakia 2019!

The HBHA held its first men`s practice in preparation for the next world ball hockey championships which will take place between June 14-22 2019 in Slovakia.

Unlike most nations we don't have the luxury of having all our players basically come from one city , therefore we try to organize a few practices during the year at a neutral location like Kingston Ontario.

Although the tournament is still 1 year away the team is preparing way in advance and our staff is looking to select the players that will once again represent their country with pride and honour.

This will be the 6th World Championships that the Hellenic Ball Hockey Association sends a team to represent Greece. We have finished in 4th place in the last two world tournaments and are very proud of this accomplishment but we are looking to improve on that in Slovakia.

Despite this being the first team practice since the 2017 WC, the players were quick, focused , motivated and very excited.

We also want to thank the masters team who also came to practice at the same facility and even took part in a friendly scrimmage against their younger opponents. This was the first time the HBHA held a practice at the same day for both the  men's and masters ( 40+) teams.

The Masters team will be attending the ISBHF masters ball hockey championships which will take place this September 26-30 2018 in Bermuda.
