It's Alive!

Handball is alive and thriving at BYU. New players and those who want to try the sport are always welcome.

What is it?

Handball is an extremely fast-paced ball game (Teaser, Bike/Chapman, Shumate/Christoff, 3 min. video, 5 min video.) It's played in the same court as racquetball (racquetball is a derivative of handball, invented in the 1950's, by handballers). In handball, the ball is hit by your hands, not a racquet. And the ball is *really* fast compared to a racquetball. Check out some of the links in the sidebar.

Can I play?

We welcome men and women of any age or skill level to join us. Most of our players had never played before they joined our group. Curious? Please, come give it a try. We can loan you gloves and goggles until you get hooked. We meet at court 2 (glass wall) in the Richards Building.
Fall 2013 Semester schedule is MTWTh 12:00 pm, Fridays at 3:00 pm


We now have a BYUSA Handball Club making us official. As an incentive to get new players to give the sport a try, the handball faculty advisor has offered a $100 prize to anyone who can beat him in a match. Any number of attemps is allowed.
