The benefits of being coached by women is the topic of the next EHF Activities webinar, taking place on Tuesday 21 March.

EHF Champions League stars-turned-coaches Nerea Pena and Raphaelle Tervel will lead the discussion, focusing on the advantages of female leadership and how increasing the number of women coaches could benefit handball.

Currently there is only one female coach in EHF Champions League competitions. WHC Buducnost BEMAX head coach Bojana Popovic was also the only female head coach at the Women’s EHF EURO 2022, leading Montenegro to bronze.

Vipers Kristiansand Champions League champion Pena and Spanish international finished the EHF Master Coach Course with the aim of becoming a coach after her playing career. Tervel, a two-time Champions League winner with Györi Audi ETO KC and former French international, is now assistant coach for the Hungarian powerhouse.
