What is Mini Handball?

Think 5-a-side football with your hands, think water polo without the water, think fast and furious action-packed team sport with nonstop goals!

Quite simply, Mini Handball is an all-inclusive adaptation of a team game that promotes fair play, fun and physical literacy.

Mini Handball is here to offer grassroots training and competition opportunities to strengthen the foundations of handball in England.

Lynsey D

Excellent sport with fantastic coaches!! Highly recommend this as an inclusive sport for children of all abilities

Rebecca L

My son finally has found a sport he loves and I throughly enjoy watching. Watching the game on Saturday especially when they scored right at last minute in one match was priceless. I use to play Roller Derby and throughly miss that comradeship but seeing him having this with his team is smashing. Well done... is there a Ferndown Falcons Womens? Asking for a friend

Trying to find a sport that my 8 year old loved was hard until now. He loves handball the coaching from all the team makes it fun they are all amazing. Very well organised and very friendly and welcoming i definitely rate 5* highly recommended.

Ginny S

A great club with fantastic opportunities for my children to get involved in. They love the weekly club and the variety of competitions at weekends and during holidays.

In 2022 I knew nothing about handball..and didn’t know it was even a sport. Two months into 2023 and after a term of after school handball on a Friday and two tournaments under their belt my two boys absolutely love this sport. As a mum I’ve encouraged my boys to try different sports…I’ve stood on the cold football sidelines…Sunday mornings at rugby and even sat watching a trial session at taekwondo to see nothing was really grabbing their fancy until I watched them play handball. It’s an absolute delight to see them play and to play together enjoying a game they love so much and what’s more they go home exhausted but buzzing to play again! The coaching team are fantastic and I would highly recommend to any parent to get in contact with the mini handball team 😊 try it and see!

A great club for all abilities, Liz is fantastic with the kids and it’s amazing to watch them progress as a team 🤩

Mini handball has been a revelation for my 2 children. They have found a sport they love, can play and learn together and show massive progression in a short time. This has overtaken football as their favourite sport to play and I am so pleased they have begun their handball journey! Thanks Mini Handball!

Adam R

My son has found a sport he loves no matter what sporting ability you have mini handball is a sport where everyone is equal and they all have so much fun. Watching his and his friends progression seeing kids laugh and gain confidence is such a pleasure thank you to everyone to introducing this sport to my son.

“What I love about this club is the emphasis on Fair Play and Team Work. Liz really promotes a sense of belonging for all the children and that shines through when you see them arrive on League days in their T-shirts!!”

Steve Howlets

“My advice is to just go and try it! Ben is a little shy about trying anything new, but we were made to feel so welcome by everyone that he’s been smiling about it ever since!!”
