The Polar Ice Cream 28th School Handball Tournament (Boys/Girls)-2023, organized by Bangladesh Handball Federation and sponsored by Dhaka Ice Cream Industries Ltd, will begin on Tuesday.

The seven–day competition will be held at two different venues -- Shaheed Captain M Mansur Ali Handball Stadium and Sheikh Russel Roller Skating Complex – in Paltan, Dhaka. 

“Schools will be busy with annual examinations; they don't want long schedule. We've chosen two venues, so that we can complete the competition within a short time,” BHF general secretary Asaduzzaman Kohinoor told in a press conference at BHF premises on Sunday.

This year, 24 schools – split into eight groups -- will compete in the boys' event while 19 schools – split into six groups – will participate in the girls' event.

The final of these both events will be held on September 4. 

Kohinoor further informed the sponsors would provide Tk 15 lakh out of the budget of Tk, 17, 50, 500 while the federation would provide the rest of the amount, jerseys and balls.

Meanwhile, Dhaka Ice Cream Industries Limited head of marketing Md Abdullah Al Mamun, BHF vice-president Golam Habib, executive committee member Selim Babu and others were present in the presser.
