Owing to their importance for BSM model building, understanding the non-perturbative physics of Sp(2N) gauge theories is of high importance due to their large-N extrapolations. In this talk, we examine the glueball spectrum of Yang-Mills theories based on symplectic groups. Glueball masses are calculated numerically with a variational method from Monte Carlo generated gauge configurations. After performing a continuum extrapolation for N=1,2,3 and 4, we use the obtained continuum limit to determine masses at large N. We compare the resulting spectrum with that of SU(N) in the same limit.
