Bristol Handball Club Seeks Friendly Matches

Bristol Handball Club - www.bristol-handball.co.uk - is now up and running. So far they have attracted lots of male players but only a few women players to their weekly training sessions at the University of the West of England in Bristol. 

The Bristol Club is looking to play some friendly matches over the next few months and would like to hear from any teams interested in playing against them. They are just playing for fun right now whilst they get established but a few training matches would be a great help. The club has access to a full sized court in Wellington, Somerset if teams are willing to travel.
