Commonwealth Handball Meeting in London

Representatives of a number of Commonwealth handball federations met in London this weekend. Items on the agenda included a Commonwealth competition for Men and Women and a youth competition for U17 boys and girls. The members also discussed how to get the sport, already recognised by the Commonwealth Games Federation, actually onto the programme of the Commonwealth Games. It was recognised that a primary function of the CHA and where it could be most effective is by influencing International Handball policy and elections. There are over 50 Commonwealth nations affiliated to the International Handball Federation and this would make the CHA a powerful block.
