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.
