Just like in the previous cycle in this zone it was the men’s and the women’s team from Thailand that qualified for the Continental Phase of the IHF Trophy. And they did this in some fashion!

 The boys won all of their five matches in the tournament which was played on a round robin basis. They were concentrated during the entire tournament, and in the match that decided the winner they defeated Singapore 27:22. It was however the match which decided the 2nd placed team that was the most attractive, as the host Malaysia lost to Singapore by a single goal – 18:19.

 In the women’s tournament the Thai girls showed their strength and just like their peers in the men’s Competition won all games of the tournament. After securing three victories in the preliminary round, they demonstrate class and in the Final they defeated host Malaysia clearly 25:16. In the match for bronze medal Singapore was better than Indonesia winning 10:6 in a low scoring game.

 This means that the both teams from Thailand will qualify for the Continental Phase of the IHF Trophy which will take place from 27.04. to 03.05.2015 on a venue yet to be announced.

 As part of its commitment of developing handball worldwide, the International Handball Federation organized courses for referees and coaches during the Event. Mr. Terje Anthonsen (NOR) was in charge of the referees course, while the course for coaches was headed by Dr. Taiysir Mansi (JOR).
