We chose court handball because the members of our group play chink or wall ball in our spare time. It is also a team sport and a lot of fun.
List the countries where it is played and its origin.
The modern handball was introduced by Irish immigrants. It's played all over the world for recreation and organized sport.

What are your feelings about this game? Did you enjoy playing it? Would you recommend it?
Ed: One of the reasons I like this game is because it's so flexible as to where it is played and how. I really enjoyed learning more about sewey, chink, wallball or court handball. I also learned new things that I can add to my recreational game I play at home.
