Women’s Handball: Sisters Ndiaye, Thiaba and Astou perform well respectively in Morocco and Algeria


Just like women’s football where several sub-Saharan girls shine brightly within our clubs, they also leave their mark on Handball

Indeed, in recent years, Senegalese women’s handball has seen several of its young talents migrate to North Africa at the end of the season. This is particularly the case for the Ndiaye sisters: the eldest, Thiaba, has been playing in Morocco for three years, while the youngest, Astou, is playing this season in Algeria after a stint in Tunisia. Both stand out for their good performances at the end of the season.

After their time in the local championship, these two young talents in women’s handball continue to shine in North Africa. Coming from the renowned training club Keur Massar Handball Club and having evolved with the youth selections of Senegal, where they were awarded Challenge Trophy awards, they now bring their know-how to North African clubs.

Thiaba Ndiaye in Morocco

At 24, Thiaba Ndiaye plays with the Nouacer Handball Club based in Casablanca. This season, she won the two major trophies of Moroccan women’s handball. During the finals, she led her team to victory against her compatriot Ndiolé Sène’s Mountada Derb Sultan. In the league, Nouacer triumphed 31-19, with Thiaba scoring 11 goals. In the final of the Moroccan Throne Cup, she scored 10 goals, sealing the victory 26 to 16. These two successes crown a high-flying season for the former Disso player.
