Street Handball to be lunch in The Gambia
Street Handball a game that can be played by everyone across sexes, ages, and in line with fair rules, is scheduled to be lunch in The Gambia on Saturday 24th August 2019 at Batokunku village in Kombo South District, West Coast Region.
Bid and to be hosted by Mr Jerreh Jatta alkalo #Batokunku Village, Street Handball is an awesome game to play in our streets, parks, football arenas, etc.
The whole idea of Streets Handball is that children and adults learn how to control the game completely by themselves with or without interruptions from any sports instructor /supervisor and generate fun for all.
Maybe, you currently thinking where and to which you will spend your weekend leisure time in. If this is the case, worry no more.
Just make a short trip to #Batokunku Village a baby friendly community located between Tanji and Tujereng. You will meet us just in front of Malang Manneh’s #Paradise restaurant on the road side.
Come and have fun 🤣🤣🤣❤️ with us because we take outdoor handball seriously.
