What is handball...?

Handball is all your general motor skills; running, jumping, throwing, catching.

  • It’s water polo without water.
  • Lacrosse without sticks.
  • Football using your hands.
  • Basketball with a 3-by-2-meter goal instead of a 10-foot-high hoop.
  • The game moves fast, there’s lots of scoring and shots reach speeds in excess of 80mph.
