NZHF development project

For the benefit of all involved with the sport of Handball in New Zealand, on the 2 February 2006 a new organisation has been formed, namely the New Zealand Handball Federation (NZHF).

The objectives of the New Zealand Handball Federation are:
•    to grow and develop Handball in New Zealand
•    to have a strong national representation at the World Championship Qualifiers and at the Olympic Games
•    to organise local, regional, national, and international tournaments for competitive and social divisions
•    to help establish regional Handball federations to more effectively facilitate these objectives
•    to be an accountable organisation which openly communicates with all of its members

The New Zealand Handball Federation wishes to acknowledge the International Handball Federation for their generous support. With special thanks to Dr Hassan Moustafa, Frank Birkefeld and Patric Strub for their assistance in this NZHF Development Project.

The International Handball Federation (IHF) has made a very big investment in the New Zealand Handball Federation (NZHF). The Development Aid Project, launched back in 2001 by IHF President Dr Hassan Moustafa, has already helped foster the development of Handball in many countries around the world. We are proud to be one of the newest recipients of this Development Aid support.

The packages arrived at the perfect time to help us deliver on our 5-year Strategic Development Plan. Many objectives have already been fulfilled ahead of target, and now this latest boost will see to a very successful launch of our children’s handball programme and a new referee training programme amongst other things. Naturally a lot of support will be also be directed at existing clubs.
The entire development package will be distributed over time across all of New Zealand.
