Volunteering, as an unpaid and non-profit activity, is of extraordinary importance for the organization of any kind of event, and it is certain that without the contribution of volunteers it would not be possible to organize any major event, including sports competitions. For example, more than 100,000 volunteers were involved in the organization of the last Summer Olympics in Tokyo, while the organization of the WC in Qatar is currently supported by about 20,000 volunteers.
For this reason, and on International Volunteers Day, which is celebrated every year at the beginning of December (December 5), we would like to highlight the importance of volunteering as a socially important sector.
On this occasion, since beach handball tournament Jarun cup was also involved, we would like to inform the public about the results of a recently completed project to promote volunteering at beach handball competitions.
The fourteenth edition of the Jarun Cup 2022 international beach handball tournament Jarun Cup 2022 lasted from April 28 to May 1, 2022. After the tournament did not take place in 2020 due to the COVID -19 pandemic and was played at the end of August last year due to epidemiological measures, this year the tournament returned to its usual date on May 1.
In this year's edition, about 140 matches in 8 age groups were played on 4 sunny days, with a total of 55 teams from 12 European countries participating. In addition to the participants from Croatia, Germany, Greece, Poland, Sweden, Great Britain, Slovenia, the Netherlands, Italy, Serbia, Hungary and Cyprus were also represented, making the Jarun Cup one of the largest European beach handball tournaments (over 500 participants and 50 volunteers).
At its regular meeting on April 11, the Croatian Olympic Committee decided to support the beach handball competition Jarun Cup organized by ABHC Zagreb.
This is the continuation of a series of cooperation between the Croatian Olympic Committee and the ABHC Zagreb, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank the umbrella organization for supporting this sports competition.
Although in Croatian, the full decision can be seen HERE.
