    I have seen the dudes at the gym play handball in the racket ball courts and it looks like fun. Just wondering who here is a enthusiast, and where they found is a good place to buy equipment.

    Yeah I love handball. I used to play it during recess everyday in middle school and after school in the summer.

    I tried to play in college but all my friends didn't understand it. They were just like why not play racketball or squash. I have yet to see many people play it or even know about it outside of ny.

    As for equipment.... There is none!
    Buy some of those blue bouncy balls and find a wall. That's it!

    Also prepare for your hand to hurt a lot until u build up a palm callous.

    Man now I wanna play again.... Haven't played since the summer after senior year of high school. It's been too long.

    yeah, there's not much to it. get a ball. hit it with your hand to the wall and check your boundaries.


    want to get into it myself, too - never heard of it as a regular thing until i moved to nyc and there's courts all over.

    We used to play it at school in sports. I thought it was pretty fun but nobody else was that interested in it so they stopped it.

    This is the first time I've seen it mentioned since then!
