WOMEN’S
EHF EURO 2024
Czech Republic • Poland • Slovakia

The roots of handball comes from Czechoslovakia. One of the first vari- eties of this beautiful sport discipline was hazena. The rules of the game were developed by Czech physical education teachers, first Josef Klenka, and then refined by Antonín Krištof in 1905. Hazena gained popularity first in Czechoslovakia and then in Europe. It reached its greatest popularity in 1934-1938. During this period it was grown almost exclusively by women.

The beginnings of handball in Poland are quite early, as they date back to 1918. They are bound by Polish legions interned in Szczypiorno near Ka- lisz, who learned from the German guards a new game in a POW camp.

After Poland regained independence handball began to develop dynami- cally throughout the country, initially in its popular then 11-man version.
