Yeah so, being from NY and all, this was an everyday part of growing up and chillin in the city...me and my brother keep talking about playing almost EVERYDAY.........we got a court now, it's African engineered........it's on the SW side by Memorial/Eldridge.......whenever someone wants to get a different kind've work out on...............................bring it bitchs!!!

In all seriousness, I would love for this sport to get some growth in houston. I can't find a single wall court anywhere in this town. 4 & 3walls are everywhere and I don't consider that to be handball at all.

LMK if anyone wants to get down.

It's really closer to Memorial & Bateswood/Frent(SP) it's behind a school inside a neighborhood. Tennis courts w/lights, we marked out of bounds/short and long.

You play or down?

Isn't this the same handball that inmates play in jail?

hand ball is that what its called? We use to call it wall ball growing up. We played it all the time growing up, stopped up until middle school. really don't know why, maybe because we saw it as a kids game like kickball.

Yea, most people here associate as a jail past time.

called it wall ball, red ass (because if you missed the wall then we go to throw the ball at you)

Wall ball and hand ball are different. Hand ball is more like racquetball. Wall ball is people throwing a ball (usually a tennis ball) to a wall and catching it. We used to play handball in college at the racquetball courts.

We were taught handball in middle school. Been wanting to play ever since. You're right, there's no courts.
