    Just wondering if anyone has any information on this..but does Navy has a club handball team or anything to that sort? Because a friend of mine plays on the West Point handball team and I wasn't sure if Navy had one and it certainly looks like a fun sport..

    You might consider Squash... it's like handball with a racket (head of racket is about the side of a badminton racket, but sturdier). Squash is a very fast game, and the court seems to get really crowded with the ball, rackets, and two players trying to get to the most advantageous position.

    I assume you are talking about team handball. Navy doesn't have a team. However, Army seems to send more than their share to the Olympics. It is a great sport. Navy does play fieldball, used to be outside in the winter. Great stress reliever. Same concept.

    The OP is speaking of Team Handball. This game is nothing like squash but sort of a combination of indoor soccer and basketball.
    West Point has had a team for decades, won many National championships and sent several players to the Olympics.
    Air Force is the only other service academy with a Team Handball club.
