Kildare Handball Update 05/03/2021

Unfortunately, as a predominantly indoor sport, handball has been very badly hit by COVID with all competitive action ceasing in March 2020 and when competitive action began again in the summer, for 60 * 30, it was restricted to only Minor and Senior (Open) singles grades. As a result Kildare Handballers have seen little to no competitive action since the initial lockdown a year ago.

The County Handball Board comprises of:
There are presently four active Handball Clubs in the County:
  • Leixlip GAA
  • Maynooth GAA
  • Ballymore GAA
  • Moone GAA
Kildare Handball were saddened to learn of the death of Pat Hipwell, former Secretary of Kildare Handball Board and Moone Handball Club. Pat was well known for his active role in keeping handball alive in the Moone club and throughout Kildare. We wish to extend our sincere sympathy to his family at this difficult time.
