Exhibition game vs Mens Team Lebanon 

The Masters World Ball Hockey Championships is fast approaching and will take place between  Sept 26-30 2018.  Twelve teams will be participating in this event which will take place in beautiful Bermuda.

This ball hockey event is for players over 40 years of age (a few between 37-39 are allowed per team).

 It is held every two years and is quickly becoming one of the ISBHF`s most popular tournaments, probably second only to the Men`s  World championships (which is the premier event for the world ball hockey title, as nations send their best players).

The masters event was created to allow older players (many of whom participated in previous world championships) to still compete at a very high level , to continue to represent their culture , county and heritage.

In preparation Team Greece is slowly finalizing its roster and should be announced by the end of this year.

It is also very difficult to play exhibition games as many of the nations do not have both Men`s and Masters programs. Recently Team Lebanon reached out to play an exhibition game vs our Men's team , but this is impossible as many of our players are scattered throughout Montreal , Toronto, Niagara and some play ice hockey overseas ( preparation for the Worlds in 2019 will only begin for us my mid 2018)

Therefore we  thought it would be a great idea to have our Masters team play Team Lebanon.

Team Lebanon is a very new nation to the ISBHF family but is quickly moving up the ranks. They attended their first World Championships this past June in Pardubice Czech Republic and did well in the B pool. They are already preparing for the 2019 World Championships which will take place in Slovakia.

The team is very young and quick and was a real great test for our Masters team. Despite the age difference there is a lot of experience on our side and that also helped. The game was played this past Sunday at Le Rink in Montreal. The final score was 3-1 for Team Greece but it was a very hard fought contest as both teams had many chances to win this game. It was intense and fun and important for both teams as we  look ahead to our respected tournaments .

The HBHA would like to sincerely thank Pascal Malkoun and Team Lebanon. We wish them good luck in 2019 and keep up the great work!
