“It is important for us that we can play this championship,” said Silke Méndez, president of the Costa Rica Handball Federation upon hearing the decision to suspend the Centro Senior Femenino Handball Tournament on the recommendation of the Medical Commission of the Confederación de Sur y Centro Handball America.
This situation prompted the El Salvador Handball Federation headed by Cecilia Hernández to mobilize its entire work team to try to comply with the requirements of the charge book, especially in health matters.
And this time COVID-19 did not win. The authorities of El Salvador decided to give all their support for the realization of the event where Central America once again has a tournament of women’s senior teams. Although Panama, Guatemala and Honduras will not participate, all need need to play, to return to the court to feel the emotion and maintain the motivation of the players and the handball family. This tournament will be a triangular played by the local El Salvador, Costa Rica and Nicaragua who have already confirmed their participation.
Thus, between next August 4 and 7, in INDES premises, in the Palacio de los Deportes Carlos “el famoso” Hernández, with a capacity limited to 2,000 spectators (the venue has capacity for 6,000) according to the recommendations of the doctors of COSCABAL and the Ministry of Health of El Salvador.
A suspension that fell like a bucket of cold water was transformed into an engine that generates new energy, the energy of women who lead two of the three federations that participate in the event and that, as the entire american family of handball thinks, is important , it is very important that we can play again.
