Monday 9th March saw 14 teams from across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough take part and compete in the School Games County Handball Finals 2019/2020. An exciting event ensued as children aged 12 to 15 took part in County Finals throughout the day.

The Tournament consisted of 4 different categories – U13 Boys, U13 Girls, U15 Boys, U15 Girls.  This event took place at the Cambridge University Sports Centre (University of Cambridge Sports Centre, Philippa Fawcett Drive, Cambridge, CB3 0AS) and was kindly supported by England Handball.

The venue came alive with the sound of cheering and camaraderie as the schools battled it out to become champions. Matches were highly contested and closely fought for, often coming down to the last couple of minutes! And final results in some cases coming down to goal difference. Each school represented one of the five Partnership areas – Cambridge (CSSP), Hunts (HSSP), Peterborough, South Cambs (SCSSP) and Witchford (WSSP).
