Wallball is a great sport for secondary schools. It works perfectly as both a PE option and as a lunch-time or after-school club. It is also a great adjunct sport so young people can get active instead of just sitting around and waiting to play another sport.
Any Wall, Any Ball, Any Time! All you need is a wall and ball and you can get started. Wallball started its life in the UK way back in 2007 and is now growing faster than ever before. We have one of the best national teams and now play on courts all across the world! In December of 2019, we even took our first ever junior Team GB over to Holland to compete in the U17’s European Championships!
The Players play using both their hands, hitting the ball onto the wall using a variety of different shots and techniques hoping to beat their opponent. If they can’t return the shot, that’s your point!
Games can be played 1v1 or 2v2 and can be all boys, all girls or mixed! Games can go first to 11,15,21 or 25. Timed matches are also really fun.
Although the sport is now called Wallball, it also goes by other names you may have heard of including Patball, Handball and 1-Wall.
We have a variety of launch packages available, including staff training, ranging from simple ‘mark a court and get going’ boxes to fully fledged set-ups with full-size court installation.
