On Wednesday 15th May coaches from Danish Handball club Vidar Ulkebol recently travelled to London to take sessions with West London Eagles Handball Club. As part of Queensmead’s partnership with West London Eagles, the coaches visited to lead a Year 9 session and an after-school club.
The sport is pretty new to the students as Handball is not particularly well known in the UK. Despite this, students worked very well in the sessions and really gave the sport a go! The techniques are very different from those that they are used to in sports such as netball and football but the students picked it up quickly and showed they have great talent in the sport! Hopefully, this has inspired the students to attend the school club and even join a club outside of school.
