The 2018 handball season will open with an explosive national tournament set for Mutare next month. 

Zimbabwe Handball Federation president Stewart Sanhewe says they are using the event to select players for the national team.

The tourney will set the tone for the 2018 handball season which is expected to provide excitement to the handball faithfuls.

Last year the Handball Federation ushered in new management after the then president Amon Madzvamuse was relieved off his duties following allegations of incompetence.
