GAA Handball is a ball and wall game that is fast paced, highly skilful, hugely entertaining, and fully inclusive.
There are many variations of ball and wall handball throughout the world but in Ireland there are four codes of handball; 40×20, One-Wall, 60×30 & Hardball.
The 40×20 and One-Wall codes are the two international codes, whilst the 60×30 and Hardball codes are traditional Irish games. What varies between the four codes is:
- the number of walls in the court
- the size of the court
- the type of ball used
Handball can be played in Singles (1v1) and Doubles (2v2), with All-Ireland Championships in both Singles and Doubles in all our codes. The fitness benefits of the game are vast. Speed, agility, endurance, flexibility, and bilateral coordination all come in to play and the transferable skills
