Report

Handball was included as one of the four original Gaelic Games in the GAA charter of 1884. It is the only one to have become a genuine sport, with the game being played at a high level in USA, Canada, Australia, Mexico, France, Italy, Spain, Basque Country, Belgium, Netherlands and the UK.

Wallball is a version of the sport which attempts to unite the various versions of the sport played worldwide and the European Wallball Tour is a Pro Tour with events in Belgium, Spain, Netherlands and UK.

Ireland’s Conor Mcelduff regained top spot in the end-of-season Rankings for 2017-18 from Spain’s Sacha Kruithoff. Paudi Quish also finished in the top 10, while James Prentice, Colm Grace, Jamie Kelly and Anthony O’Sullivan also finished in the top 50.
