Founded in August 2014, Durham University Handball Club are one of the youngest Team Durham teams. Being a part of such a young club offers members many exciting opportunities, whilst continuing to contribute to the future of the club. Handball is rapidly growing across the UK; yet still relatively new Team Durham have multiple teams to cater to players of both genders and levels; DU Handball welcome everybody from beginners to experienced and national-level athletes. 

Over the past three years, the team have competed in many tournaments, more notably the women's team have won medals in the past three BUCS tournaments. A lot of these players started handball for the first time here at Durham, so if you have never played before but have a desire to try something new at university, now is the time.
