News for Winnipeg Team Handball League

Opening Weekend!! 2017-2018 Season

Posted Sat Oct 21, 2017 - 09:22 AM

If you're new to the league, all our games are held at Red River College (2055 Notre Dame Ave), in the North Gym. You won't be able to get in via the front doors, but instead need to enter through the tall building in the middle with the sign that says "Security". North Gym is located on the Mall level all the way down the main hallway. Ask someone in security if you need directions. You have 10 minutes of warm up time before each game, so please arrive early to ensure youre team is ready to go!

Each player must fill out our online digital waiver form before you play. This is for both new players and returning players. Each year you need to sign a new waiver form for the WTHL. If you are found to have played a game before signing the waiver form, your team could have consequences that may change the outcome of your game. If you are having trouble, please contact your team rep.


For those of you over the age of 18, you are all invited to join us at the season opener kick off party!!! This is an informal event, as we're just inviting everyone to come out!
What: Unofficial league kick-off party
Entertainment: Karaoke, drinks and a few laughs!
When: Saturday, 21 October at 9pm
Where: Limelite Tavern
Who: Everybody!
Cost: There are no tickets to purchase, just show up!
If you have any questions about the party, please contact the MTHF Communications Director: Caiti Liewicki:

For anyone travelling from the south end of Winnipeg and are planning on travelling via Kenaston/Route 90, please note the all lanes between McGillvary and Sterling Lyon will be closed this weekend due to railway tracks being replaced. You will have to detour around this area entirely, so don't get caught in the construction!!
