Cardinal Heenan School's guide to handball


Handball is one of the fastest growing Olympic sports in the country.

The sport is popular across Europe but has struggled to generate significant interest in the UK in recent times.

But both the Great Britain men's and women's teams will be competing at this summer's London Olympics.

School Reporters at Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School in Liverpool, with the help of ex-GB captain John Jacobson, have thrown themselves into handball and give their guide to the sport.
