We are Aristos Amsterdam. The most renowned handball club of Amsterdam. In the past seven years we have established ourselves at the hightest levels of Dutch men’s handball.
In 2009 we were still active on the fifth level in The Netherlands. But after a couple of successful seasons, we advanced to the Dutch Eredivisie (the highest division in The Netherlands) in 2014. Since then we have managed to maintain ourselves at the first division, one level below the Eredivisie.
“At Aristos Amsterdam, playing handball at a high level goes hand in hand with fun and a social career”
Our success has been anchored in our club. At Aristos Amsterdam, playing handball at a high level goes hand in hand with fun and a social career. Most handball players finish their (semi-) professional sports career before the age of 25. The high amount of training sessions and the long-distance away matches require the necessary sacrifices in terms of social life. We have managed to successfully unite those two dimensions. Our first men’s team has two training sessions per week and is playing in the Dutch first division.
