Handball Club

Welcome to the Handball Club!

If you are looking for a fun, fast-paced, physical game, Handball is the sport for you! We are a new club made up of a mix of complete beginners, experienced players and everything in between. We welcome players of all abilities.

We have a women's and men's team who both compete in the Scottish Student League (which the men's won in 2021-22!). This league consists of weekly matches, home and away, so always a chance to explore Scotland! There is also the opportunity to play in the Scottish Cup. The past couple of years, both teams entered the BUCS national competitions and had a fantastic time competing against teams from all over the UK. Throughout the year we also hold lots of socials including scavenger hunts, BBQs, Christmas dinners, as well as socials with other teams after our league competitions, so keep an eye out on instagram if you are interested!
