Handball Comes To Nevis

Saturday 1st December saw a historic first in Nevis. On that day, members of the Handball Association of St. Kitts and Nevis, assembled at Pinneys beach, in the vicinity of the popular Sunshine’s bar and grill, to teach the game to interested persons on the island.
The event was coordinated by the Youth and Sports Department on Nevis and Director of Sports Mr. Jamir Claxton, warmly welcomed the members of the executive, while explaining that it was the very first time that the game was being tried out on the island.
One of the members of the Association, Mr. Leroy Greene presented some equipment to a fellow member of the executive (Nevis based), Mrs. Govanie Hendrickson, which included balls and nets.
He stated that one of the most watched sports at the last Rio Olympics, was not Football but Handball and stated that he was happy that the game was finally coming to Nevis.
Mrs. Hendrickson expressed her appreciation to the Association on behalf of the people of Nevis.
It is expected that the persons who attended the session at Pinneys Beach will now proceed to teach the game in the schools and to interested members of the general public.
