Come and try handball!

With the help of living-sport, we are offering again 6 weeks of handball try-out sessions under the Sportivate initiative! This means that new members who want to give handball a try can come and give it a go for 6 weeks starting on the 1st of April for only £5 for 6 x 1h sessions! Why not come along and see why this sport is so amazingly popular throughout the rest of Europe? If you want to read up a little bit about the rules before, you can find short rules here.

We will have two session for different age groups: Wednesday 6-7pm for 11-15 year olds, and 7-8 pm for 16 years and over. No previous handball experience is necessary, just curiosity and enthusiasm. We are running these sessions alongside our normal junior and development sessions, so you can see what it is all about. We will split into groups according to ability, so don’t be shy if you haven’t every tried handball… we will make sure you are in a suitable group. Or if you enjoyed it in school, make sure you come along to give it a real go! Both boys and girls are welcome to join.

Make sure you are wearing suitable indoor clothing, i.e. t-shirt/short + non-marking indoor trainers and please no jewellery/glasses etc that might get you or other players hurt during the games. If you need glasses, we suggest contact lenses or sports glasses.  We are a very friendly and social club, so don’t be intimidated by the fact that our established teams are doing well in competition, we are still open to complete newcomers to the sport. In fact the majority of our 2nd team only started playing since the London Olympics.

If you have any questions, don’t hestitate to get in touch with us before you show up. Otherwise, we are looking forward to seeing you at one of our sessions. Remember, starting Wednesday 1.4.15 with the other 5 sessions following on the 8.4.15, 15.4.15, 22.4.15, 29.4.15 and 6.5.15. Don’t worry if you missed the first one (or more) you can join at any stage.
Our trainings are at Chesterton Sports Centre,  Gilbert Road, Cambridge, CB4 3NY.
