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 boys won in 2021-22!). There is also the opportunity to play in the Scottish Cup. Last year, both teams entered the BUCS national competitions and had a fantastic time. 

We train Monday; 15:00-17:00 (mixed)

               Wednesday; 14:00-16:00 ( outdoor mixed)

               Thursday; 9:00-12:00 ( boys/girls)

So if you are interested in joining us or just want to give Handball a go, please feel free to come to our Fresher's Week events!

We have two taster sessions: Monday, 12th September. 16:00-17:30 @Pleasance Sports Complex & Gym

                                                Wednesday, 14th September. 17:00-19:30 @ Pleasance Sports Complex & Gym

We'll also be having some socials after the taster sessions, so feel free to stay or just come for some food and drink and get to know the club and what we're about:)
