COLORADO SPRINGS - On February 23-24, four teams will compete in the exclusive Select Sports Big Four Handball Challenge; the first ever women's invitational team handball tournament to be hosted in the city of Los Angeles. Los Angeles Women's Team Handball Club (LAWTHC) has partnered with international handball's brand SELECT Sports to co-host the tournament. 

The tournament will feature top teams from across the nation and promises to become one of the premier handball tournaments in America. The tournament will consist of six official games to be played over the two-day span at the LA Galaxy Soccer Center in Torrance, Calif. The games will start with group play Saturday, February 23, at noon and continue Sunday with the championship games.

Coming off their victory in late January as champions of the California Cup, LAWTHC is hoping to build upon their recent success and attempt to remain undefeated on the season. Standing in their way is the Northern California powerhouse San Francisco Cal Heat Smurfs, who will be entering the tournament more focused and motivated than ever as they look to avenge their defeat at the hands of LAWTHC in the California Club championship game.

With this budding rivalry, as well as competition from other first-class opponents such as Denver Dynamo HC and West Point Academy, the Big 4 Challenge promises to be one of the most intense and exciting handball tournaments in recent memory.
