Handball Australia is the national governing body for the Olympic Sport of Handball and for the sport of Beach Handball. Australia has consistently won the Oceania championships in both men's and women's division. In 2014 the International Handball Federation (IHF) decided to exclude Australia from the 2015 World Men's Handball Championship. The team is headed to Kosovo to play in the IHF Emerging Nations Trophy from 20–26 June. They have been drawn in Pool F alongside Great Britain and Armenia. The team will be contesting the Asian Men's Olympic Qualifiers in Qatar in November 2015. This was part of the outcome of Australia having been excluded from the 2015 World Championships.
