In 2006 I participated with DGI>> in a seminar called “Street Sport for Europe”
in Brandenburg, Germany and this was my first encounter with Street Handball on a Street Court.
It was a lot of fun to watch the participants who never had played handball before.
They were crazy about the game because there is no physical contact
and the ball is soft and easy to catch.
(See the first video click the play button above.)
In 2007 Street Handball (streethandball.com) was established. It was my mission then and still
is to let people with interest in handball see for themselves how cool and fun it is to play
outdoor handball and show to others that it’s ok.
Since the beginning I have collected videos/photos of early outdoor handball in the cities.
As Street Handball has become more popular more Street Handball concepts have been
implemented with fair play rules and no physical contact.
The mission of my project is to encourage and invite everybody to play Street Handball. It can
be played anywhere outdoors – for example on street pitches, multi pitches etc. with a goal in both ends.
Street Handball International prefers Street Handball using 2 goals makes it more fun and
it might even improve your overall fitness and let the new handball players see how much fun
the real game is, with Fair Play rules: No physical contact or dribbling is allowed.
(One might wonder why football has become so widespread? We Do not think it’s about to play for 1 goal)
Your tool is any kind of handball/softball or homemade ball etc.
Street Handball is played towards 2 goals with a semi-circular or straight lines goal area in front each goal.
(You can use either goals made of wood or you can simply draw the goals on a wall.)
Remember: You decide the size of the court and how to play.

If you like this page, please help spreading the news about handball and let other people get
involved in volunteer work because our society will improve when children and teenagers are
active in their free time.
I hope I’ll get more updates and news about Street Handball over time.
