REgional LEague

University teams can enter the England Handball competition pathway by entering the traditional club leagues, via their login on the EHA Azolve system. Team registration opens in July and closes in September. 

Entrants are split into leagues based on their region and play on weekends across the year. Fixtures are played home and away from September to June.

Universities should enter these leagues if they are looking for sustained continuous fixtures across the year and varied competition. University clubs should be established witha good player base before deciding to enter these. 

University Tournaments

These tournaments take place at the start of the season and are designed to enagage freshers and new players/development teams into handball with entry level competition. Tournaments are supported by England Handball and University clubs may offer to host rounds of competition.
