If you head to Verl at Pentecost, then you're going for one reason and one reason only: the Verler Handball Cup. Upon first glance Verl is a quiet, rural spot just south of Bielefeld. But during Pentecost, the local handball club TV Verl really brings the town to life with the Verler Handball Cup. For two days, the stands are brimming with people and the festival tent is packed to the rafters. In Verl, handball is the number 1 sport. The approximately 100 year old organiser has an incredible talent for organisation as well as a remarkable and beautiful sports complex: the perfect combination for an international handball-fest.

Organiser

The Verler Handball Cup is organised by Turn Verein (TV) Verl 1912. This is a multi-sport club with a handball section. Approximately 350 members participate in 30 teams, including 22 junior teams.

Sport facillity

The tournament will be played at one venue in Verl, the sports and school complex in the centre of Verl. There are 3 halls that are connected with one another to form a single tournament venue with modern facilities, stands, changing rooms and a kiosk for drinks and snacks.

Verl

Verl (25,000 residents) lies some 10 kilometres south of Bielefeld, on the outskirts of the Teutoburg forest. Participants will stay in the modern school centre next to the sports complex. Everything is within walking distance, so you can leave your car at home. Verl doesn't have a shopping centre, but it does have a cosy, rural feel dotted with the famous timber frame houses.

Verl outdoor pool

The outdoor pool is located only 500 metres from the sports centre and the schools. There are 3 heated pools, a diving tower, a beach volleyball field and a café/restaurant. There is also a grass field for handball or soccer.
