Women’s beach handball event removed from SEA Games 31

VOV.VN - Vietnam will not hold the women’s beach handball event at the upcoming Southeast Asian (SEA) Games 31, according to the organising board.

The removal of the sport has been caused by a shortage of participating teams. So far, there are only two countries registered for the event, including Vietnam and Thailand.

According to the tournament’s regulations for team sports, the host country can only organise the sport with at least three teams registering for the event.

As a result of so few teams registered to participate, the Vietnamese beach handball team will not have the chance to show their talents at the event, with this decision set to impact the Vietnamese team’s achievements at the games.

This comes after the Vietnam women's beach handball team made history by reaching the semi-finals of the 2019 ANOC World Beach Games in Qatar.
