Tryst 77 Handball Club will be represented by seven different teams at this year’s Scottish Cup ‘finals’ which will take place at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility in Motherwell.
With a number of age group matches and finals taking place, the event will be held over a weekend.The first day will start with the Super Mini age group (born 2004/05/06) which will see Tryst compete in a four team round robin format with the top two going on to contest the final.
Next up is the Mini age group (born 2002/03) which follows a similar format to the Super Minis in having a round robin league system. However, Tryst has not one but two teams taking part in this age category.Both the Super Minis and Minis are mixed girls and boys teams.
For the last couple of years the Scottish Handball Association have tried to follow the lead of the European Handball Federation whose major club tournament – The Champions League – has a ‘final four’ climax to the competition. This sees the four semi-finalists compete on the Saturday with the winners facing off the following day in the final.
So once the Super Minis and Minis have got the day off to a flying start, the remaining Saturday schedule sees the semi-finalists take to the court.
In the womens tournament Tryst will face long time rivals Glasgow while in the mens the Cumbernauld side take on Edinburgh.
On the Sunday as well as the womens final and mens final, there is the Junior boys final, the junior girls final and the junior mixed boys and girls final.
Tryst are involved in the girls final and the boys final.
In the girls final Tryst will take on an extremely strong side from Kelvinside Academy and in the boys final another strong team – Livingston – awaits the Tryst youngsters.
We wish all the Tryst teams and indeed all teams taking part, the very best on the day.
