New York City battle the World All Stars
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. Loyalty, enthusiasm and friendship allowed the club to survive, and later grow.
In 1992 the team moved to Brooklyn, and in 2007 we expanded to New York City.
We are a non-profit 501 (c) 3 charitable organization. Our goal is to promote, educate, and introduce the Olympic sport of team handball to as many new people in New York.
Every year our teams compete in many tournaments around the country. In the past five years NYCTHC has become one of the most dominant teams in the nation.
In 2007 for the first time we won the Gold Medal at the US National Championship in Delaware.
In the 2009 US National Championships in Chicago, NYC defended the title by winning all six games.
During the Las Vegas US Nationals in 2010 New York City won bronze medal.
