BYU Handball Club
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 3 in the Richards Building.
Winter 2022 Semester schedule is MTWTh at noon, Fridays at 12:30.
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 or Rex Nielson in a match. Any number of attempts is allowed.
