It is with a heavy heart that the Hellenic Ball Hockey Association is deeply saddened to announce that one of our own Stefanos Govas passed away yesterday. We are all devastated with this news.

Since our inception, the HBHA has sent a team to represent Greece at the world ball Hockey Championships. It is a true honour and privilege to wear the blue and white jersey and represent your country and heritage. Stefanos did so six times ( 5x men’s: 2009.2011,2013,2015 ,2019 and 1x masters 2018) and he did it with pure class and with pride.

We have travelled the world competing in foreign nations, an amazing experience giving it your all win or lose.
The best part of it all is the friendships you make along the way the people you meet, the ones that last a lifetime.

Stefanos was loved both amongst his peers and his opponents. He touched anyone that had the pleasure of meeting him and brightened up their day. His ability to make you laugh no matter how up or down you were will truly be missed. I loved playing with or against him and the hours of discussions.

We lost a special member our Greek brotherhood. The world lost a bright light and a terrific human being with a huge heart.

The Hellenic Ball Hockey Association will like to express our most sincere condolences to his family , friends and teammates.

May you Rest In Peace my friend.
