The World Handball Championships in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, turned to the four wall divisions yesterday, and will continue until the 21st. WPH film crews will be right there capturing the action from the show court at the University of Calgary. WPH #TeamR48 Members can watch for FREE (membership levels here: www.wphpass.com) as the stream will be at www.race4eight.com beginning at 8am Pacific today.
Monday’s men’s open bracket was whittled down from 32 to 16; Paul Brady, Luis Moreno, Sean Lenning, Emmett Peixoto, Robert McCarthy, Charles Shanks, Dairmaid Nash, Martin Mulkerrins, Killian Carroll, Jon Iglesias, Mike Finnegan, Joe McCann and Colin Crehan all advanced in two straight games, creating a few interesting match ups on Tuesday’s Rd of 16. In the Women’s singles, just a couple prelim matches took place, to include wins by Shirley Chen and Suzanne Koehler.
The Calgary Handball Club will be scheduling the show court on Tuesday, not the WPH. “We have been brought in to help promote the results,” says WPH Lead Cameraman, Jeff Kastner, while setting up equipment on Monday. “We will stream whatever match is placed on this ultra-clean and presentable show court.” WPH crews realize schedules will run late, so a basic projected Tuesday line-up has been created with two options for each hour (between men and women’s open matches). “Though, we do not know the exact line up until Calgary pulls the trigger, we know we have the names, times and location right,” chuckled Kastner. “Our goal is to assure those from around the world can see this amazing game.”
