On 15 March, IHF President Dr Hassan Moustafa welcomed the President of the Netherlands Handball Federation (NHV), Tjark de Lange, to the IHF Head Office in Basle, Switzerland. The NHV President gave a brief summary about the handball activities in The Netherlands and presented the development of beach handball in particular. Especially in women’s handball, The Netherlands have recorded impressive results as they established themselves among the top teams over the past few years, ranking in the top four at all major international handball events since 2015, such as Women’s World and European Championships as well the Olympic Games. In beach handball, The Netherlands have a bright future ahead, as their women’s youth team qualified for the 2017 Women’s U17 Beach Handball World Championship as European champions, where they claimed silver.
