Club Balonmano Granollers (also known as BM Granollers) is a handball club based in Granollers, Catalonia, Spain.

The club was founded in 1944 and it is one of the oldest and most successful Spanish handball clubs in terms of titles won. Since its inception, the club quickly got a great competitive level. BM Granollers has competed almost every season in the top league of Spanish handball (currently Liga ASOBAL). It became the first Spanish handball club taking part in a European competition in 1959. BM Granollers won the EHF Cup Winners' Cup in 1976, so it became the first Spanish handball club winning a European title.

Thanks to this history, the city of Granollers hosted the handball matches at the Barcelona 1992 Olympic Games. The Palau d'Esports, the current club's arena, was built for this event and subsequently has also hosted the 2013 World Men's Handball Championship.

One of the BM Granollers' landmarks is its commitment with young players formation. Many great handball players and team managers have been formed in BM Granollers' youth academy (players such as Joan Cañellas, Antonio García, Enric Masip and Mateo Garralda; team managers such as Pep Vilà, Miquel Roca Mas, Toni García and Carlos Viver). In recent years, moreover, BM Granollers has significantly increased the number of female teams in the youth academy. From the 2014-15 season, BM Granollers has become the only handball club in Spain with main male and female teams simultaneously in the top league of Spanish handball (Liga ASOBAL and División de Honor Femenina).
