Fourth EHF webinar turns focus on social projects in handball

The fourth EHF Activities webinar of the year features former elite player Jennie Linnell, who will talk about Sweden’s ‘Hand the Ball’ concept on Wednesday 28 September at 13:00 CEST.

Linnell is the project leader of Hand the Ball, which was introduced in 2020 by the Swedish handball federation. It aims to support local clubs in starting social projects, and builds on leadership education and new scientific developments focused on leadership and motivation.
