The 2nd annual Big Apple Handball World All-Stars Tournament will be held this January 1-2, 2011 In New York City’s Riverbank State Park Pavillion. Top professional teams will be competing on the multi- patent SnapSports® ShockTower™ Team Handball sports flooring, the official flooring of the United States Futsal Federation ( USFF).
HANDBALL, widely known as Team Handball in the United States, is played in 159 nations by 39 million people. Many people link elements of basketball, soccer and lacrosse to the sport. It is fast, physical and exciting. Competition consists of two teams, composed of six players and one goalie each, facing off on a court approximately 66 by 131 feet. Players dribble, pass and shoot a ball into a goal. It is a very fast, exciting and aggressive player-on-player contact sport, and the SnapSports® Bounceback surface is designed to absorb player impact during aggressive play.
“We are excited to have SnapSports® surfacing at the 2011 Big Apple Tourmament and All Star Event with the best team handball floor the US has to offer the Sport. All of our teams and professional players really enjoyed playing on SnapSports at our 2010 inaugural event.”
