Handball Cook Islands president Makiroa Mitchell-John said the competition was intensifying as they enter the final stage in the preliminary round.
“The competition is running smoothly and we are now heading into the last three rounds before our major OCHF IHF Under-21 Men’s Tournament,” she said.
“It’s been a tough competition with a lot of players also attending dance practices (for Te Maeva Nui) in their respective groups but many who come just enjoy keeping fit throughout this winter season.”
