Handball is a fast-paced game that everyone can take part in. From developing the cardiovascular system, to improving agility and flexibility on the physical side, it also promotes team work, fair play, self-development, confidence, co-operation and friendships.

Handball is the most popular sport in women across Europe and the second most popular sport for men. It is rapidly growing in popularity across Hampshire and a number of clubs have been established. You can use Get Active Hampshire & IOW to find a club near you or you can download the Handball in 5 leaflet which will give you a taste of Handball in just five minutes.


England Handball has a number of coaching programmes dedicated to different areas of the game.

Girls 4 Gold is England Handball's female-only leadership award aimed at encouraging women aged 14+ to inspire other women to get involved in Handball.

Wheelchair Level 1 is England Handball's coaching certificate for those who are interested in coaching Wheelchair Handball and introducing the game to people who have never played before.

For more information on all of England Handball's coaching programmes visit the England Handball website.
