HC Vardar (Macedonian: ЖРК Вардар) is a Macedonian women's handball club from Skopje. The team currently competes in the Macedonian women's First League of Handball, Women's EHF Champions League and in the Women’s Regional Handball League.

History[edit]

Until Kometal Gjorče Petrov officially stopped working, Vardar was the only other club to win any title in any of the competitions in Macedonia by winning the 1994 Macedonian Cup. In the 2012/2013 season with the arrival of the new sponsor and sporting director Sergey Samsonenko along with some new players, the team started to achieve more positive results and won its first league title.

Since 2013, they have three 3rd-place finishes in the EHF Champions League.
