You played before and want to continue with us?

So you have played handball before and want to continue playing in Cambridge? Cambridge HC is just the right place for you!

We welcome players of all abilities and are a very friendly, international club. (Please note that we are not a professional club and don’t offer any sort of payment to players/coaches/staff but in fact the players have to pay for training (see training).) If you are thinking of joining us at one of our trainings, please get in touch with us before, to make sure training is taking place as usual and we know to expect new players.

If you already talked with us and want us to be able to register you as a player, please follow the link to fill in this form.

Below, you find more information on the teams we currently have and what the requirements are for you to play in them.

Women

After a short detour into the regional leagues in 2018/2019, our women’s team has reestablished itself in the Premier League in 2019/2020, finishing in 3rd place and qualifying for Europe. Unfortunately, due to the Covid situation, the team could not take up this great opportunity, but is hoping to earn the chance again in future seasons. 

The team is made up of a mix of young and old, experienced and novice players and we are always keen to have new members of all levels and age groups. Please get in touch with us if you want to join us for both training and/or matches!

 

Men

We have a well established men’s section and in 2020/2021 season are entering one team into the Premier Handball League. We welcome experiences players as well as enthusiastic novices who can work their way up into playing for the team.

If you are an experienced player you might consider joining this team, which will have you play on the the highest level available in Britain. However, if you are not British (or have played outside of Britain in the last 2 years), you will require an international transfer to be allowed to compete at this level. International transfer’s cost £123 to the releasing federation (i.e. France if you are french) and £123 to the European Handball Federation. The releasing national federation can consider waving this fee, in which case you would “only” have to pay £123 to the EHF. If you are under 18 years old or currently in full time education, you can transfer to England for free. This means, any pupil or student wanting to join us can become part of our Super 8 team after a free international transfer. Also, if you have not played in the last 2 years outside of the UK, you won’t have to pay a transfer fee. However, in all cases, you will have to fill in an international transfer request.

Apart from the transfer fees, players will incur more fees for matches and for registration.

However, on the bright side, this allows you to play on the top level in England and gives you the chance to qualify for European Competition!

Regional development team:

We have made the decision not to enter a 2nd team into the regional league this season due to the uncertainty of the overall situation, but if there is a suitable number of keen players, we will organise friendly matches for those who are not quite experienced enough to play in our Premier League team.

Junior teams:

We have trainings for junior members and currently have an U19 girls team in competition. However, we encourage all age groups from 11 onwards, both male and female to join our trainings and if numbers allow will join friendly matches and tournaments for appropriate age groups.
