Soccer should be called football, and American football should be called handball or something similar.

I'm an American, and I wager that this is an unpopular opinion, at least in the States. I think this way because in soccer there is very little hand play, while in American football it is exactly the opposite.

American Handball Courts in South Austin?

Google is failing me, but I can't seem to find any any American handball courts really anywhere in Austin. Does anyone know if there are any official setup to play handball at? This is different from Team Handball.

American Handball players in JAX?

Sometimes called street handball. Most commonly seen played in the tri-state area or any of the 5 burroughs.

Transplant from NY here. Been here for a couple years now. First reddit post too. I’m curious if anyone is aware of any group of players that play American Handball. Either organized events, or just regularly meeting up at a local handball court (of which maybe someone could help me to identify) for some fun at night or during the weekends.

Gameplay explanation below for those unfamiliar.

It’s a fast paced game. Great for exercise. It’s fun to play, entertaining to watch, and a competitive sport at that. Red Bull now sponsors American Handball tournaments, and there is a group in Southern FL that organizes events where they bounce between Queens, NY and South FL for competitions. There’s enough NY’ers here in Jacksonville to know what I’m talking about and how to play so I’m curious if anyone in NE FL is already playing that I’m just unaware of. To my knowledge it’s always been free to play since courts are usually built on school or public park property in NY... so it would be a great sport to get Jacksonville aquatinted to!

Game Overview: For those who aren’t familiar with American Handball, try not to confuse it with the Handball played in the olympics (I think it’s an Olympic sport) because its totally different in so many ways. To explain as simply as I can... you can’t grab the ball at any time during play β€” think hybrid of racquetball and tennis, except your hand is the racquet. It’s usually played against a free standing concrete wall typically independent of any type of structure or building . (Picture a 30ft high, 100ft wide wall made of stacked cinderblocks and finished with a smooth coat of cement standing erect in an open area for recreation... typically a park or public school property.) 4 courts would be painted on a wall this size with 2 courts for painted on each side. Lines are typically 2” thick and painted creating your perimeter/boundary to the left, right, rear, and a β€œshort line”. The short line is drawn parallel to the wall and (not sure of this) 2/5 the court’s length and positioned closest to the wall. (Again, picture both tennis and racquetball courts for reference minus the net) also, the ball used to play is a HOLLOW rubber ball. I’ve seen some try to play with dense, heavy balls better used for racquetball. It doesn’t play well when your hand is the racquet.

The serving player must serve while standing anywher

1st Men's North American and Caribbean Handball Championships

Hey Handball fans. Well, I must say it was an been an exciting and ground breaking week of handball.

The Dominican Republic hosted the first Men's North American and Caribbean Handball Championships for Emerging Nations.

And it streamed live on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XojgbvSv8Aw&list=PLrE0WHJbMDM3LInnqpIgoiWi84x5Pwt9B is the playlist from the IHF's Youtube channel.

There were many virgin teams, including Barbados, Haiti, Dominica and St. Kitts (my home country).

I have been an advocate for the proliferation of the sport in my country as well as the Caribbean since I discovered the sport in 09.

When watching the games, bear in mind that it's some of the country's "first time at bat" to quote the the baseball saying. So be gentle.

We have a long way to go and It's the first step toward top talent coming out of the Caribbean to play professionally.

What are your thoughts on how the sport growing in the Caribbean?

American who fell in love with handball, visiting Iceland in June. Any way to attend a game?

This sport fell upon me during the olympics a few years ago, and it instantly became my favorite. The pace is awesome and it looks so easy and fun to play.

I had no luck finding any teams in Iceland that play, or any kind of schedule. This would be an awesome bonus during my trip if I got to see this played live. Thanks in advance!

American Football should be called Handball or American Rugby

American football barely use their feet to pass the ball or score goals so it shouldn't be called football. Handball is a much better name for it, though they'd have to ask for the name. It also is essentially modified rugby so could be called American rugby. No idea why it's called football.

To avoid confusion they should just call it American Rugby. Even though Rugby is way better.

They could also call it "Takes three times longer than it should" ball

What should an American know about handball?

So I've watched this sport ever since the 04 or 08 olympics. Honestly I love the sport. It's high scoring, fast paced, and just fun. Of course I'm an American and...well our ability to "handball" is almost nonexistent. Especially where I'm from. So I have a decent idea of the rules thanks to a video I found here. I just want to know things like leagues, where can I watch, and any other info I should know. Thanks for helping out an uneducated American!

PS feel free to make American jokes. I know sometimes people like to jokingly jab at us and honestly the stupidity from my country deserves it. Perhaps it will give us all a good laugh.

When it comes to team sports, Americans seem to like rules-heavy "tactical" ones (US football, baseball, basketball) whereas Europe loves ones that are more "straightforward" (soccer, handball, rugby). Why ?

This is something I never got.

Americans tends to be impatient and to love nonstop action-packed entertainment (at least that's the clichΓ©), but then they only swear by team sports with lots of pauses, strategic decisions and the ability to switch players anytime. I'm not criticizing these tastes, but it blows my mind how you love team sports where athletes do not play that much.

Here in Europe, we don't get these sports because they are "too complicated". Don't get me wrong, soccer and rugby are still tactical sports, but that's not that big of a deal compared to "american football" or baseball, which is basically turn-based. Soccer or Rugby are simplier to understand, which should mean that they're more "attractive". But you guys don't seem to care unless there's a major even, like we do with the Superbowl.

I think that's illogical. Why is this that way and why do "simple sports" are not popular in the US ?

What to teach Americans about handball

Hi. I am trying to teach a group of Americans how to play handball. I am not much of a coach and am not really sure where to start. If you had to do a team handball introduction for novices, what would you start with?...this is for people that maybe have only seen a five minute clip on youtube of the sport. Where do I start?

[PS1][2000?]American Football/Handball Sports Game. Features weird teams such as aliens and other things, has a sniper function where you can tranquilise someone.

Platform(s): PS1, PS2?

Genre: Sport

Estimated year of release: 2000

Graphics/art style: -

Notable characters: There are different types of players such as skinny dudes that can run fast and giant guys who can flip people over their shoulders as they run into them.

Notable gameplay mechanics: Plays like american football and handball put together, you can charge with the ball, pass it to your teammates and you have to throw it into the enemy players net/goal. The sniping game mechanic is very unique and when you press it, time freezes and you go into a sniper scope in the stands and shoot a player.

Other details: It MAY be on Playstation 2, I'm just guessing. Also the arena is very small and is indoors, it is surrounded by a crowd. It ISNT this but it reminds me very much of these games https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uTuCe4afRlY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MiQ85gkZ6EU

American here, looking for a good handball or cricket game

Since these two sports are as close to unknown in the US as possible, it's difficult to get anyone's personal opinion on a good version of the game. I have all of the major systems, so I could pick it up for whichever came out with the best version.

Do Americans watch Team Handball? IMO it's one of the most suspenseful sports out there.

This (match ends at 70:00) is a good example of how close Team Handball matches usually get. I am in no way interested in sports, but holy shit, Team Handball can get my adrenaline going.
