I would like to see a handball court built in our city. It is a great sport that involves minimal equipment and is not dangerous. There is a great site that promotes the sport and provides excellent information as well as videos. It is http://www.onewallhandball.org/ Here is a description from their site.
You can build a court like this which is popular in many city parks but it will cost about $15,000 or so. This court has 4 one wall courts. Two courts on each side.
American handball is played on a court 40 feet long by 20 feet wide with a one (front) wall.
Handball may be played as singles (two players against each other), doubles (two teams of two players)
The ball is "served" by one player standing in the service zone, by dropping the ball to the floor of the service zone and striking it on the bounce with the hand or fist so that it hits the front wall.
A rubber ball. Most balls used in the game are high bounce Spalding. They cost about $2.00 to $3.00 each.
