ŽRK Zamet (Ženski rukometni Klub Zamet) is a women's handball club from Rijeka, Croatia, formed in 1957. The club currently competes in the Croatian First League and the Croatian Handball Cup.[1]


The club was founded in September 1957 as RK Partizan Zamet by Prof. Stanko Jerger, Josip Šarić and Vittorio Drog. On the initiative of Stanko Jerger, the women's team was made later. Until January 1985, the club was combined with RK Zamet.[2]

In 1962, the players of Partizan Zamet went to the quarter finals of the Yugoslav Cup where they lost 6:5 to Zagreb. The next year, they finished second in the Croatian championship and failed to qualify for the First League, being one point behind Partizan Bjelovar. They failed to qualify for the next three seasons. From 1971 to 1974, the club played in the Yugoslav First League. After 1974, the club played in the second tier of the Yugoslav Women's Handball Championship until the collapse of the Yugoslav league.

In the first season of the Croatian league, Zamet played in the 1.B HRL, won the league, and got promoted to the 1.A HRL the same season. In their first season in the 1.A HRL, the club finished in second place and qualified for the EHF City Cup, which was their first appearance in a European competition. The club was then led by Slavko Bralić.

From 2002 to 2004, the club was called Croatia Osiguranje Zamet due to sponsorship.


Since the foundation of the club, matches were played on the playground Zamet when field handball was played.

As of 2009, the club has been playing in Centar Zamet. The capacity of the venue is 2,350 spectators.


Since the beginning of Croatian handball in 1992, Zamet has competed at the highest level.
