ZHF secretary-general Edson Chirowodza said their members should expect more activities going forward as they seek to take the sport to the next level.
“We now need to have an induction of all the committees, once that is done everyone will know what they are supposed to do and it will be serious business going forward.
“We are going to see an improved service delivery and performance by all members as we have people with a strong passion for the game in decision making positions.
“We are also going to have a strategic plan and have a website, more technical programmes including provincial national leagues hence our followers must expect more activities.
“Our 2021 calendar is ready and we will work towards achieving our short term and long term goals,” said Chirowodza.
The national federation is now being led by Beauty Mtsambiwa, who has promised to improve the standards of handball in this country.
