You may have watched a game in the Olympics and wondered what on earth you were actually watching. Handball is virtually unknown in Britain however, it is one of the most popular sports in the world, and the second most popular in Europe. Handball is an indoor team sport, which mixes high-speed action, gymnastic agility, sleight of hand and power with spectacular shots at goal.
Loughborough University Students Handball Club has had a very short, but spectacular history. Only forming in 2007 with around 10 members and 1 team, the club has grown to over 70 members and 3 different teams competing in a variety of leagues.
Compete for your halls of residence in Intramural sport (IMS) in competitions throughout the year. It’s a great way to get involved in Hall life and meet new people in a more social and less competitive environment.
The second biggest sport in Europe and one of the fastest growing sports in the UK; handball is played on the same sized pitch as netball or small sided football with a ball that is bigger than a tennis ball and smaller than a football and the rules are a mix between netball and basketball. All in all, a great, fun sport that you will want to play again and again.
