New generation in HMB sport

  Many clubs of HMB culture are thinking about cultivation of younger generation of champions. Because in other case, clubs would be in danger of disappearing in the future.

But the question is: will they also be good in comparison with those who…

“Beaches of Barcelona”

Wouldn't it be great to have the beach option coupled with the culture and sightseeing that a big European city could­ offer?   Before the Barcelona Olympic Games in 1992, it was often said that Barcelona had "turned its back" on the sea. All that changed when new beaches and a long new beach-front was constructed for the 1992 Barcelona Olympic games. Since then Barcelona has become a top beach…

It is always a pleasure…

It’s been almost seven years since the 1st Battle of the Nations and almost eight years since the first captains’ summit.
