Boston Team Handball History

Boston Team Handball Inc., formerly known as the New England Freeze, is a first division US team handball club based in the Boston area. The team was first established by a group of MIT graduate students in the Fall of the year 2001, as a student-run sports club.

As the team grew bigger, and as its membership expanded outside the MIT community, the team spun off to become an independent entity. Today, both, men’s and women’s teams, play in the Northeast Team Handball League, USATH Nationals, and other tournaments across the US and Canada.
