One year after Spain won men's gold at the U16 Beach Handball EURO, the same generation of players also topped the podium at the World Championship, beating Italy 2:1. Argentina won bronze following a 2:1 win against Russia in the match for third place.

In the women’s event Hungary beat the Netherlands, who had won the U16 Beach Handball EURO 2016, 2:1 to claim World Championship gold – and to show that there is another strong generation of beach handball players growing up in Hungary.

Just like in the men’s event, women's bronze was won by Argentina who beat Portugal, the bronze medallists at the U16 Beach Handball EURO 2016.

With the end of the U17 Beach Handball World Championship, the line-up for the beach handball tournament at the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires has also been determined.
