What is it?
Handball has been described as football using your hands, basketball with a goal, and water polo without water! It is a fast-growing, fast-moving, fun team sport with up to seven players per side. The main aim is to score goals, and there’s always plenty of them!
Why is it good for me?
- Improves fitness and stamina
- It’s great for improving core physical skills such as running, jumping, throwing and balance
- You feel part of a team
How much does it cost?
It varies between clubs but a guide would be somewhere between £4.50 and £5.50 a session.
What equipment do I need?
The best thing about Handball is that all you need to play it is a pair of trainers and clothing you’re comfortable in. If you begin to play competitively you may want to invest in relatively inexpensive equipment such as ankle supports.
