The first ever Europe Trophy took place over the weekend – the third level of the European club competition, after the Champions League and Europe Cup.

The competition is played regionally (8 regions) all in group stages and the regional winners qualify for a Grand Final in order to award the Europe Trophy winner.

Over the weekend Fusion TTC hosted the Men’s competition and Ormesby hosted the Women’s, with a total of 14 teams taking part in the Region A stage of the competition.

Fusion TTC came out on top in the Women’s Region A Europe Trophy winning five out of their six games across Saturday and Sunday.

Ormesby TTC streamed selected matches on their Facebook page which you can watch again here.
