Introduction

The Club Balonmano Granollers, one of the most traditional handball clubs in Spain, will be organizing the 21st edition of this International handball Tournament for young handball players, the Granollers Cup. Our club, with seventy-five years of history, has been constantly working with its youth to have its own senior teams, always participating in the Spanish Highest Division, and three times champion in the European competition.

Also, in 2013 Granollers was one of the views of the World Championships Men’s that was played in Spain on January. Such important events represented a remarkable step in the history of the club and an extra motivation to keep up with the daily effort of promoting handball. And in 2021 will be celebrated in our city the Girls World Championship
