Handball (also four square, n-square - where n is the number of players - or downball) is a ball game played in schoolyards in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, South Africa, China and South East Asia. Unlike most types of handball, it does not incorporate a wall, instead of being played on a court consisting of lines on the ground.
Basic handball game setup. Find a piece of hard, smooth ground on which to draw your court. With a piece of chalk draw a 4×4 square with K,Q,J and D in the right places with a metre x metre perimeter. That’s it, now get ready to play and make sure you follow the handball rules so everyone enjoys the game!
Game is played by hitting the ball with one bounce by hand, over the line into other half of court and the ball being hit back after one bounce. The rules: Two opponents play against each other. If the ball bounces twice before being hit means 'out'.
Aug 30, 2012 - Handball - my favourite school yard game in middle school! We played against one wall, 2 or 4 players, every chance we had :)

The game is played with a ball (usually a tennis ball) on a paved surface against a wall and usually involves a large group of players. When a player’s throw off the wall is caught before it hits the ground, the thrower must attempt to touch the wall before the opposing player can get their throw to the wall.
