Conor Mc Elduff claims double GOLD in Euro Wallball Spanish Open Championships in Valencia…

An impressive 13 Match winning Run in just 2 days by Cumann Liathróid Láimhe Breacach Clubman & Tyrone GAA Handball star, Conor McElduff, was what was needed to secure a first ever Spanish Open Euro Titles in Men’s Open Singles & Doubles.

McElduff has been the dominant one wall handballer in Ireland now for four years and back in July secured an impressive third Irish Wallball Nationals title as well as claiming the Al Ireland Senior Wallball Championship title. Also a winner of the 2017 Lough Wallball showdown title in Loughmacrory at the end of July, McElduff has actually lost just once on Irish soil since he claimed a first nationals title in 2014.

Of course, the plan will be another big season ahead and a bid for the highly prestigious World Wallball championship crown which will take centre-stage in Minnesota, USA, next August 2018.

“Well all the top players from across Europe were playing. The likes of Tunguy, Kees Van Der Schoot & Paudi Quish in the mix as well, so it was great to come through such a very tough field in Spain.” said the newly crowned Spanish Open Champion, who has been the Teamtalkmag Tyrone GAA Handballer of the Year for the past two seasons.

“I’ve enjoyed a great year so far in the one wall and was delighted to win back the Irish Nationals title as well as winning my first all Ireland senior medal in the Wallball Championships. There are some great Tournaments now all over Ireland, Europe and around the World in One Wall so I want to put a big effort in and make my mark across those. The Worlds next year will be the biggest goal of all on that front. With the professional USA players dominating the one wall code so far I would like to push up the ranks there and maybe try and make the same breakthrough in One Wall handball that Paul Brady managed to do in the 40×20.

“That will be very tough to do and of course there are some great players in Ireland too, as I have found out with some serious tests against Charly Shanks and Martin Mulkerrins in particular, in the past couple of seasons.”
