HANDBALL is gaining momentum following its introduction late last month.

The sport officially launched by the Fiji National Sports Commission a fortnight ago has received a good response from the public.

Commission sports development manager Giles Smith said people who attended the introductory sessions were keen to learn more about the sport.

"From these, we hope to form an interim committee to begin to plan the sports development moving forward," Smith said.

"We are lucky to have qualified coaches from the UK on our shores who are currently volunteers for 'Think Pacific' so will be utilising their expertise as much as possible until they leave for the UK in 10 days.

"When they leave, we will have to look at options available for us to find a qualified coach to ensure continuity."

Smith said they were planning to hold a session today from 3.30pm to 5pm at the National Hockey Centre in Laucala Bay.
