Bower Park Academy had plenty to celebrate recently after their under-15 boys and under-13 girls handball teams qualified for the London Youth Games finals.

At the end of February, the under-15 boys travelled to take on local rivals Chadwell Heath Academy and a thriller occurred.

Despite losing a 5-1 lead to trail 9-8 at half time, Bower Park’s boys fought back well to secure a spot in the finals with a 18-16 victory.

It will be the schools first appearance in the finals at the Copper Box Arena on March 27 and they will be joined by the under-13 girls.

The under-13 girls took on Mayfield School and earned a comprehensive 23-3 triumph.

“Both teams have worked really hard in training and the school is proud of their massive achievements so far, but only half the job is done,” said head of PE Chris Baker.

“We’ll enjoy these victories and now work even harder to achieve our main goal to be the best handball school in the whole of London.”
