Norway and Denmark getting ready for championship in Turkey

Last weekend both the norwegian and danish female beachhandball teams was gathered for training and friendly matches in north of Jutland in Denmark.

Putting toghether a “new” team

Norway who ended with a silvermedal in the European Championship last year had a strong team and could be an real strong candidate for medals in the upcoming World Championships in Beachhandball.

They still can be, but with half the team changes there will be a big challenge for headcoach Eskil Berg Andreassen to put together such a strong team as last year.
Berg Andreassen is optimistic and think the norwegian team can be good enough to reach top six.
