#TeamUniSA Profile: UniSA Handball Club

The UniSA Handball Club is only two years old, but has made a significant impact in that short time! In their first year of operation, they won the social mixed indoor competition run by Handball SA and have had a number of members represent South Australia in the sport. Read more about the club and how you can get involved in the latest #TeamUniSA profile.

What events/competitions/activities has the club been involved in over the past 12 months?

Each year, the club enters a team in the social indoor competition during the winter season, run by Handball SA. Individuals from the club also play annually in the beach handball competition run by Handball SA at Glenelg beach throughout the summer months.

Outline some of your club or club member achievements.

The UniSA Handball Club is a relatively new club, formed just over two years ago, and yet the club and individual club members have had some significant achievements since its inception. In 2018, the first year of operation, the UniSA Handball Club won the social mixed indoor competition and were finalist for the UniSA Sport Team of the Year award.

Individually, there have been a number of members from the club who have represented South Australia in the men, women and mixed teams at the Australian Championships. Those students – Andrew Antenucci, Matt Busch, Boon Hao Thing, Eunice Emina, Kudo Sun, Woody Lam and Kenny – made the UniSA Hanball Club incredibly proud. Kudo Sun and Eunice Emina were awarded The Wall – the best goalkeeper in the Men’s and Women's Division respectively for the South Australian Beach Handball competition in the 2019/2020 summer competition. Eunice also came third place in the Most Valuable Player in the Women’s Division, while in the 2018/2019 summer season, Eunice was awarded the Kick Starter award.
