I Am Team GB is a nationwide campaign that has inspired thousands of UK clubs to open their doors to new participants. The campaign is brought to you by ITV and The National Lottery, working with the British Olympic Association, UK Sport and supported by Join In, to inspire the Great British public to take part in sport.

What’s more, many of the nation’s Olympians, fresh from the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, will be attending events across the nation to give people the opportunity to stand shoulder to shoulder with Team GB.

Peterborough Handball Club are proud to fly the I Am Team GB flag in the Peterborough area. The club are organising a taster event for people to try handball, one of the oldest Olympic sports played by both men and women.
