Yang-Mills theories based on the Symplectic groups (denoted by $Sp(2N)$) have the potential to describe a composite Higgs particle. To gain a better understanding of such theories, it is important to understand the dynamics of the pure Yang-Mills sector as well as in the presence of fermions. A detailed study of the glueball spectrum has been carried out for $N=1,2,3$ and 4 along with an extrapolation to the large-$N$ limit. We begin a study of the meson spectrum as a logical continuation to these studies with a view to applying the results to composite Higgs models.
