University teams can enter the England Handball competition pathway by entering the traditional club leagues, via their login on the EHA JustGO system. Team registration opens in July and closes in September.

Entrants are split into leagues based on their region and play on weekends across the year. Fixtures are played home and away from September to June.

Universities should enter these leagues if they are looking for sustained continuous fixtures across the year and varied competition. University clubs should be established with a good player base before deciding to enter these.
