Peterborough Handball Club is a team handball club based in Peterborough, England. It was founded in August 2012, building on interest in handball generated by the London 2012 Olympics. In the 2012-13 season Peterborough HC's men's team played in the England Handball East Regional League.[1] Peterborough's first win came on 12 January 2013 against Norwich Terriers, Peterborough recording an 18-17 win thanks to a last minute goal by Dan Gammons.[2]

2013-14 Season

Peterborough HC finished second in the East Anglia Development League in the 2013-14 season, behind. Cranfield HC.[3] This success was founded on double victories over Norwich HC, Ipswich HC and a strong Cambridge HC 2nd team.

2014-15 Season

The club began the season with the aim of qualifying for the England Handball play-offs, and with that a passage into the newly created national leagues below the top-level Super 8. While an early poor performance against Cranfield HC lead to a heavy defeat, Peterborough HC bounced back superbly to defeat Ipswich to bring 2014 to a close.
