Unique Stars and South Tongu Talents come face to face on Saturday, November 10 to begin the second season of the Volta Regional Handball League at the Ho Sports Stadium.
The two male sides that will be meeting for the first time in all competitions at 11:30am are both debutants of the regional league. However, Unique Stars look promising as they will be motivated by the regional Gala trophy they won 3 weeks ago.
Unique Stars, a new community club made up of enthusiastic young people have the mission of not only winning but making the sport Handball look beautiful.
Their counterparts, South Tongu Talents (STT) who come in with a lot of experience having played a district league in 2016 in their part of the region, pose danger for Unique Stars. Players of both teams are geared up for the match which will arguably be the toughest on day 1 of the league.
Female Gala winners, Mawuko will also lock horns with the female side of South Tongu Talents at 1pm. STT may look rusty and Mawuko may appear keen but the Ho Sports Stadium court at the end of full time will tell the rest of the story.
STT will wrap up the match day 1 with a tie against Stars of Asha at 3pm. It is going to be another thrilling game as it is definitely a game of equals. Both teams have mature players who can cause upset for the other team to bring the difference.
The league which has seen two postponements expects to have a very good season this year, with the inclusion of new and enterprising clubs.
Meanwhile, the Organising Committee of the league is requesting from all registered clubs/teams to pay their affiliation fee of GH₵150.00 to enable them put all necessary things in place for a smooth season.
The Volta Regional Handball Association is however calling on all corporate bodies in and outside the region to come support the league.
Stars of Asha male and TERESCO female won the maiden edition of the league and were presented with trophies.
