The federation’s new executive which is led by Former Secretary-General Amon Madzvamuse who is now the president, underlined its principal objectives, chief among them being the desire to see the game taking root countrywide.


“A new executive means new ideas. We want to see the resurrection of clubs around the country. We want to also want to start a major annual tournament for all clubs in all the provinces to enhance the standard of the game. It’s our big task to set up handball structures in all the provinces,” said Madzvamuse.


Madzvamuse reckons if Zimbabwean Handball is to be competitive on the global stage, junior development is the way to go, hence they’ll be working in conjunction with the National Association of Primary and Secondary School Heads next year to ensure development starts at grassroots.

“As of July next year, we’ve roped in NASH and NAPH. We’re putting technical structures in place to make sure handball is being played in primary schools that will feed into the secondary schools,” he said.


Simbiso Mupepereki from the Midlands is now the deputy president while Alphios Magiya from Hwedza is the new secretary general, with Manicaland’s Lovemore Baipai taking over the organizing secretary’s post.


Leah Banda is the treasurer. There are two committee members in the form of Senzeni Bushe from Bulawayo and Jameson Shumbanhete from Masvingo Province.


The Zimbabwe Handball Federation executive which was ushered into office in Gweru last week on Tuesday has already made inroads into sourcing sponsorship to keep the federation afloat with four sponsors having expressed willingness to chip in with funds.
