The Canadian Handball Association was proud to present the 2024 Canadian 4-Wall Handball Championships at the Universite Laval in Quebec, QC.

The 2024 Canadian 4-Wall National Championships will feature one of the strongest men’s open singles fields in the history of the event, highlighted by 23-time Race 4 Eight champion Killian Carroll, defending Canadian national champion Niall O’Connor, Canadian superstar and R48 #10 Ivan Burgos, Canadian legend Danny Bell, Race 4 Eight star Sean Kerr, the Santerre brothers and many of Canada’s best competing for the most prestigious prize in Canadian Handball. The women’s open singles field featured defending champion Shauna Hilley and Canada’s Maria Dugas.

Men’s Open Singles

Killian Carroll dominated the 2024 Canadian 4-Wall Handball Championships, winning his four matches without dropping a game. After dropping Canada’s Vincent St-Amant in the quarterfinals, the second-seeded Carroll overcame training partner and 2024 Aces Player’s Championship tenth place finisher Sean Kerr in the semifinals, then ended his Irish junior rival Niall O’Connor’s Canadian reign with a two-game sweep in the finals.

“The final between Killian and Niall was a great match,” stated tournament director Jermome Santerre. “In the first game, Niall was really surprising (Killian) and was able to finish long rallies with kill shots or re kill of Killian shots. Niall was diving and able to reach some incredible gets and surprised spectators. Killian still kept his focus in the game and got the job done in two games.”

Carroll teamed with Kerr to win the doubles, defeating Raphael Santerre and Niall O’Connor in the final.
