The over all performance of the Sierra Leone Handball Team in the first edition of the Commonwealth West African Handball in Kaduna, which lasted from the 4th-11th October 2008 at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Nigeria, was satisfactory.
During the competition, the Sierra Leone Handball Team played five matches and scored a total of 105 goals, whilst conceding a total of 199 goals.
Teddy Campbell scored 26 goals for the Sierra Leone side and was the best player in the Sierra Leone team, with Ginrod Harding scoring the second highest goal for Sierra Leone with 25 goals.
This is the Team’s first international outing, while the others have had this experience before.
The Sierra Leone Handball Team does not have the standard pitch for the game to be played in the country; and this has affected the overall performance of the team.
Six (6) teams participated in the competition; and Nigeria emerged as champions, scoring 157 goals and conceding 76 goals. Runners up Ghana scored 152 goals and conceded 106 goals
Cameroon scored 140 goals and conceded 85 goals; while Gambia scored 48 goals and conceded 125 goals.
