Beach handball might have made a step towards the introduction of the sport into the Olympic programme by making a debut at the 2018 Youth Olympic Games.

The Council of the International Handball Federation decided at a meeting in Doha, Qatar at the end of January that at the 2018 Youth Olympic Games indoor handball will give its place to beach handball, the IHF website reports.

The next task of the IHF and its Beach Handball Working Group will now be to define the competition system as well as to determine the qualification system according to which the national teams from five continents will vie for their place in Buenos Aires, the report reads.
