No international tournament 2020

We are sorry but due to the COVID-19 restriction, there is no possibility for an international tournament this year.


The current plan is to make a small national tournament to give the austria youth-players the possibility to gain some tournament practice.


We hope that we see you all at the 2021 edition of the Schmelzer handballtournament!


Information regarding COVID-19

Dear handball friends,

We hope that you have spent the last difficult weeks well despite the massive restrictions and that you have stayed healthy!

In view of the measures that have been taken in recent weeks to curb the spread of SARS-CoV2, from today’s perspective it seems very unlikely, indeed impossible, to be able to hold an international Schmelzer handball tournament in the tried-and-tested format this year. This is all the more regrettable since we had to cancel the tournament last year due to the short-term withdrawal of our long-term partner, the GRG15 Auf der Schmelz. Unfortunately, we also have to assume that there will be no summer tournaments for young handball players in all other European countries.

Since last year’s cancellation, with the support of GRG23 Alterlaa and USZ Auf der Schmelz, we have developed a new concept with which we wanted to hold our traditional tournament this year in the usual quality.

It is foreseeable, however, that this will not be possible due to the restrictions on freedom of travel that still apply in the summer as well as the ban on major events in the summer announced by the Austrian Federal Government.

For this reason, the registration process for the tournament is temporarily suspended. However, we are working on holding a tournament in a different, smaller format – in accordance with the legal framework. We expect these to be published within the next few weeks. If we are clear about this, we will contact you again with this new concept, which is adapted to the current framework.

The primary goal is to offer the children and young people the opportunity to practice their beloved handball sport after the long forced break.

We are always available for questions:
Mobile 1: (+43) 0664/1691342, Markus Giefing
Mobile 2: (+43) 0676/4908138, Ernst Stangl

We wish you all the best, stay healthy so that we can see each other again as soon as possible in the halls or on the playing fields.

With sporty regards,
The OK team of the Schmelzer handball tournament

We’re back!

After a one-year break, the Schmelz tournament will take place again this year.
This time the tournament location will be in the GRG23 Alt Erlaa.


Registration is now open!


We look forward to an exciting tournament!


After a one-year break, the schmelz tournament will take place again in 2020.

Save the date!
27. August – 30. August 2020

We look forward to seeing you!

27th International Schmelztournament – cancellation

Dear handball friends,


We are sad to inform you that due to organizational reasons and construction works the school space will no longer be available for the tournament. For this reason the 27th International “Schmelzer” Handball tournament unfortunately has to be canceled.
We are already working on an alternative opportunity for the next year to be able to host another Schmelz tournament by 2020.


The Schmelz tournament 2019 will not take place!


We thank you for many great tournament years and look forward to welcoming you again next year!

See you soon!
