    Often described as football played with hands or water polo without water, handball is one of a number of fast-growing sports in the UK with more and more clubs popping up around the country.

    As a fast-paced and physical team sport, handball is a good way of getting fit and meeting new friends. The aim of the sport is to pass a ball before throwing it into a goal to score and although it is usually played on a 40m x 20m court, you don’t need much equipment to set up a game of your own.

    A traditional handball team consists of six outfield players and a goalkeeper. While the concept is relatively simple, in order to master the sport you need exceptional hand-eye co-ordination, as well as the ability to think fast on your feet and work seamlessly as a team player.

    If you are interested in taking up the sport, England, Scotland and Ireland's governing bodies all have tools to help you find a club to get started.
