‘US Handbal’ is a handball club that has been playing in Amsterdam since 1950. It is the club for foreign students studying in Amsterdam. Students from countries all around the world join ‘US Handbal’ during their stay in the Netherlands’ capital city.
Most members of ‘US Handbal’ have a university degree or are currently studying for one. The membership fee is 282 Euros, but students benefit from discount on their contribution and only pay 195 Euros per year. We play matches in the Amsterdam area almost every Sunday; indoor, outdoor or beach handball. Last season, all our first teams (men and women) were promoted to a higher division. We have 10 teams playing in the indoor league. The indoor season starts at the end of October and lasts until April/May. The rest of the matches are played outside. If you play for one of our teams, we will supply the kit each week for a one-off contribution of 35 Euros.
