The juniors take to the court from 16 to 18 June 2017, followed by the seniors from 20 to 25 June. Event location is the popular Jarun Lake in the south of Croatia's capital Zagreb.

The senior championship will be played with two groups of seven teams each in the men's event and three groups of five teams each in the women's event.

Hungary are the defending champions in the women's event. Spain won the Men's U16 Beach Handball EURO in Nazare last year; the Netherlands topped the podium in the women's event.
