Olympic Handball

This is the Eirball.world Archive of Irish Olympic Handball. It is an Ongoing Project and is part of the Eirball.ie – Irish, North American and World Sports Archives

Olympic  Handball is a team sport played on the same court as a Futsal court.

It is like a cross between Basketball, Water Polo and Indoor Soccer, where the goal is to throw the ball into a goal at the other teams end of the court. It is played with the hands rather than feet and running with the ball is not allowed. The players must pass the ball into a semi-circle surrounding the opposing teams goal where they can shoot.

The Irish  Olympic Handball Association runs Senior Men’s and Ladies Leagues as well as Schools competitions.

Below you will find links to the Results and Tables of various competitions:
