Handball

Youth work has been the focus of the Schalke handballers for many years. Today, for example, some 150 young talents train with the Royal Blues. This physical team sport has a long tradition at the club dating back to 1926.

Before World War II Schalke were one of the best teams in the country and competed in the highest division. These days the men's team play in the sixth-tier Landesliga.
