New York City Team Handball Club was formed in 1973. It was composed of immigrants, temporary workers of United Nation and anybody who wanted to practice and learn the sport. Our practices were held in the United Nation school gym. From the beginning the club carried men as well as womens teams. Loyalty, enthusiasm and friendship allowed the club to survive, and later grow. In 1992 the team moved to Brooklyn, and in 2007 we expanded in New York City.
We are a non-profit 501 (c) 3 charitable organization. Our goal is to promote, educate, and introduce the game so as many new people in New York and teach them the benefits this game brings.
