Bristol impressed this season with eight wins from 10 games, although they lost their final match of the regular season, against University of Bath. Chelsea, meanwhile, won seven of their 10 league clashes this term. Throw-off is at 12.30.

Next up, at 15.00, is the match to decide who plays in the Mens’ Premier Handball League next season, when Loughborough University play Brighton.

Brighton, lost just one league match this season, against Poole Phoenix, back in February.

The final game of the day pitches Loughborough University against Reading, as the two teams bid for promotion to the Womens’ Premier Handball League.
