Yesterday, IPCH and IWAS announced the logo for European Powerchair Hockey Championship scheduled to take place in De Rijp, Alkmaar, Netherlands in July.


The draw for the competition took place in April in Italy.  Group A includes the Netherlands, Germany, Spain and Switzerland.  Group B includes Belgium, Denmark, Finland and Italy.

Madrid was originally scheduled to host the event, but issues came up and they had to withdraw as hosts.  IWAS volunteers in the Netherlands stepped up to host the competition.
