Beach Handball EURO 2017 comes to Croatia
It will be a home game for the defending European beach handball men's champions. For the second time after 2011, when the Beach Handball EURO was hosted in Umag, the EHF's flagship beach handball tournament comes to Croatia.
The Beach Handball EURO for senior women's and men's national teams will take place from 20 to 25 June 2017. It will be preceded by the Beach Handball EURO for under 17 women's and men's teams which will take place from 16 to 18 June 2017.
The venue of choice is the popular Jarun Lake just south of the capital Zagreb's city centre where four beach handball courts will be built.
Croatia have been one of the most dominant nations in beach handball.
The men's team are four-time consecutive European champions, having won the EURO events in 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2015. The women's team won gold at the Beach Handball EURO 2011 in Umag.
An earlier version of this article read that Croatia are a three-time consecutive winner. This has been corrected to four-time as they also won the European Championships in 2009.
