Established in 2012, Republic Handball (RPHB) is a team that was brought together by our passion and dedication for the sport. We welcome experienced and new players who are looking to have a good time and grow together as a team.
Handball is a contact sport which consists of 7 players (in a team): a goalie, centre, pivot, two backs and two wings. It is a combination of basketball, soccer, and netball. The game is usually played in an indoor court which is equivalent to three basketball courts.
Our Mission: To bring honour to the school and club while creating an uplifting atmosphere for those around us. At RPHB, we build on one another’s characters while striving for excellence on court and off court.
Both the Men’s and Women’s teams have been participating in annual competitions such as invitational Polytechnic-ITE (POL-ITE) Games and have held podium finishes.
