Change of name

If you've been to our site before, you will have noticed that we've changed our name from "South Birmingham Handball Club" to the simpler "Birmingham Handball Club". This is not due to anything more than just the simple recognition that we get a lot of players from all round Birmingham, not just the south of the city, as well as the fact that it better represents our mission and vision to develop handball across the city.

In the short term, this will probably not mean a huge difference to what we're doing now, although we hope that we will be able to have some of our training in a more central location. However, in the medium to longer term, we would love to see more opportunities for young people in the north of the city to learn about and take up handball and to see a larger pool of talented youngsters enjoy and compete with other teams across the region.

Why "Birmingham Bisons"? Why choose a bison as our nickname of choice? Well...... there is an old joke that is best understood if you can speak Brummie.....

What's the difference between a buffalo and a bison? You can't wash you're hand in a buffalo....
