Cameron Homes has increased its involvement in girls’ handball by establishing a club for newcomers to the sport.
The new Chase Handball Club, based at Chase Terrace Technology College in Burntwood, is seen as a vital link in the chain for handball development in the region.
It is part of a three-year £45,000 sponsorship programme by Cameron Homes, also based in Chasetown, designed to boost the sport.
“The record-breaking Cameron Initiative, with its focus on girls’ handball, has been very successful, with 15 schools now participating in the activity,“ said Nenad Popovic of the England Handball Association.
“This has led to an increased demand for opportunities to play outside school and at a competitive level. The new club is open to any girls aged 13 -17 who would like to experience the game at a beginner level.”
Cameron, which builds housing developments throughout the Midlands, currently supports several schools in the West Midlands and Shropshire as part of its commitment to the sport.
The company’s investment over the past two years has resulted in Olympia Cannock becoming league and cup winners at under 19 level and the team is currently unbeaten at under 19 and under 16 level in national competitions.
It has also led to establishment of the B73 club at Sutton Coldfield, the most successful area for girls’ handball in the country.
The Chase Club sessions take place on Tuesday night at 7.00pm. For more information email: firstname.lastname@example.org
