Handball: GAHA appeals for government support

Handball: GAHA appeals for government support

By Kenneth O. ADADE, Accra
Chairman of the Greater Accra Handball Association (GAHA), Paul Kofi Yesu has appealed to the government to build standard sports complexes in the country.

His call came after the realisation that injuries sustained by handball players in the country were due to the hard surface of the court they used.
Speaking to the media after the champion of champions at Burma Camp last Friday, Kofi Yesu was saddened by the injury, and enquired when Ghana would have a standard court.
He was, however, certain that despite the injuries of his players, GAHA had a good season and was looking forward to the next season, which, he said, was going to be much better.
“The league was so competitive because one team will be on top of the table [today], another team will be on top of the table the following day. That shows that the teams were really doing their best; but my problem here is we don’t have facilities for our teams to train.
“Former players have suffered injuries and doctors have spoken about the fact that we train on hard surface.
“So I am appealing to the government and the Sports Minister to do everything possible to get a gym for volleyball, handball and basketball to save our players.
“The champions are going out and I believe they will lift the name of Ghana.”
After the competition, prisons female team and police male team were champions of the champions in their respective ties.
