Tremblay en France Handball

After starting out as Vert Galant Sportif Tremblay in 1972, the club adopted the name Tremblay-en-France Handball from 2002 onwards, coinciding with a successful promotion push to the second division. Just two seasons later, in 2005, the club earned a place in the top flight of French handball for the first time ever.

Relegated in 2016, Tremblay went straight back up to the Lidl Starligue the following season as second division champions. Coached by Benjamin Braux, who has been coaching between 2017 and 2019, the Yellow and Black finished the 2017-18 at a creditable 11th spot, maintaining their elite status through crucial victories over other candidates for the drop such as Saran, Massy and Ivry.

One of Tremblay’s most memorable seasons was 2009/2010, when they clinched third place in the table, reached the final of the Coupe de France, where they lost to Montpellier, and enjoyed a run to the quarter-finals of the EHF Cup Winners’ Cup (a competition in which they would finish runners-up the following year), where Spanish outfit BM Granollers proved one hurdle too far.

In June 2019, Rastko Stefanovic, former Montpellier Handball and Celje player, Tremblay's most capped player, has been appointed as head coach.

Previous encounters

Paris SG - Tremblay en France Handball

On 11 March 2018, the two teams went head-to-head in a Coupe de France quarter-final, of which the Parisians came out on top (33-21), thanks in part to seven goals from Sander Sagosen.

This season, the Parisians was travelling to Tremblay on matchday 12 of the Lidl Starligue. After 11 games without defeat the Red and Blue were determined to continue on this path and that's what they did by winning 32-41 with Mikkel Hansen in a very good form and best scorer of the match. Mikkel Hansen's teammates will be receiving the Yellow and Black on matchday 26, last match of the season.

Did you know?

Goalkeeper and captain of Tremblay, for whom he signed in 2016, Patrice Annonay is a seasoned veteran of the French handball scene. After committing himself to Paris Saint-Germain in 2005, he experienced a rollercoaster decade with the club from the capital, brandishing the Coupe de France in 2007, and then enduring the disappointment of relegation two seasons later. In 2012, the consistent shot-stopper witnessed the arrival of stars such as Luc Abalo, Didier Dinart and Mikkel Hansen, as a team built to compete with the established powerhouses in France and Europe not only began to take shape, but started securing national league titles, as they did in 2013 and 2015. In total, Annonay has made more than 2,000 saves in his league career, and the evergreen 39-year-old goes into this new season as one of the best goalkeepers in the Lidl Starligue.
