The Chicago Inter Handball Club welcomes eight top men’s clubs and four women’s clubs to Chicago for the eighth annual Michael Lipov Memorial Tournament October 26-28th. The event honors a dedicated handball fan and will take place at Northeastern Illinois University (5500 North Saint Louis Avenue). This year’s tournament will feature many familiar faces and some of the best handball teams in North America and Canada.
On the men’s side, the three-time defending champions New York Athletic Club are returning to defend their title. They will be tested by last year’s runner up Chicago Interwho is looking to avenge last years close loss. From last year’s elite division, they will also be joined by San Francisco CalHeat, the Houston Firehawks and Army West Point.
Also looking for the title will be Team Handball Academy, Minnesota TH, and our only international team this year HC Toronto.
On the women’s side, two-time defending champions Rogue will look for number three. They will face tough matchups against last year’s second-place finishers Chicago Inter. West Coast powerhouse San Francisco CalHeat and newcomer to the tournament Houston Firehawks will round out the field.
We look forward to a strong showing of handball! Admission is free so come join us.
