Centralizing tournament and league results

Feb. 21, 2012, 8:27 p.m. (ET)
USATeamHandball.org will finally be the central destination of all results for the National Teams, club tournaments, club leagues, and the National Championships.

For too long, American handball fans have had to scour around the internet from a variety of websites, Twitter accounts, and Facebook pages, to find the latest results from tournament and league play.

Today, USA Team Handball (USATH) will attempt to centralize match results going forward by locating all relevant outcomes to this page: http://usateamhandball.org/results

The page is also located in the red header on the main page of USATeamHandball.org under "Results."

The current system requires data to be manually inputted into tables which is where the following request comes from. USATH is asking that tournament officials fill out the attached spreadsheet (click here) after each tournament, round of league play, etc. USATH officials will then input the results into the website's databse.

Information for the Texas Team Handball League (TTHL) was readily available so we have already inputted it into the new formatting to provide an example for tournament and league officials to use: click here.

Accurate and timely reporting is absolutely criticial if we are to maintain this page going forward. Having the results centralized in an open and public way provides a more transparent way of operating from both the National Team and club level.

Please be patient with us, as we build this database and thank you!
