We currently deliver Handball in Eskdale School in Whitby and soon to be introduced in Scarborough.
Handball has been described as football with hands, water-polo without the water, and basketball with nets. What it is, is the most exciting, high scoring, action packed team sport that can be played anywhere by anyone. As there are so many elements of different team sports combined into one, many people will be able to understand the game very easily. Not only is Handball great for your fitness levels, it is a very social sport through which you can meet lots of new people.
Handball is a team sport in which two teams of seven players each (six outfield players and a goalkeeper) pass a ball and attempt to throw it into the goal of the other team.The players move freely around the court bouncing or passing the ball (after up to 3 steps), with the opposite team defending against them, trying to intercept the ball. Players can run anywhere on the court with the ball (so long as they bounce it) or without it, apart from the two 6 meter D shaped goalkeeper areas. The team with the most goals after two periods of 30 minutes wins.
