Described to be a combination of football, basketball, and water polo- handball is a great all-round court sport! With Ancient Greek origins, the sport is unrestricted by number of faults like other sports, making it fast-paced and exciting! Two teams face each other, with each team aiming to throw the ball into the opposing goal. Players can’t keep hold of the ball for more than 3 seconds- making for a fun and thrilling sport!
