Overview:

Handball can be played with any kind of bouncing ball on practically any kind of wall. The United States Handball Association promotes “any ball, any wall” in teaching. Teachers are encouraged to use any available equipment and space. Handball can be taught as a unit for the entire class in the gymnasium or used as a station activity in one section of the gym. There is no need for regulation-sized courts in a gymnasium. Cones and floor tape work well to mark playing spaces and boundaries.

The following lesson plans for teaching handball in middle and secondary schools have been written for grades 6-12. Court size and distances (from the wall when hitting a ball) can easily be adjusted to match the developmental levels of learners.
