2. Playing handball on your own DIY court
Ahhh, who knew the days of playing handball on the street with the neighbours would end up being so special? It’s time to bring these awesome memories back (or create a few new ones) with your own DIY court. All you need is a piece of chalk, a tennis ball and somewhere safe to play (probably best to avoid the street these days, ahem). Use the chalk to draw the court on an area of smooth ground. The court can be any size depending on the space you have to play with but for the best ball-whipping action, we like to make ours 3×3. Once you’ve found your space, use the chalk to draw four separate squares – labelling each one with either a K (Kings), Q (Queens), J (Jacks), or D (for Dunce). It’s that simple! Handball rules can be pretty basic but there are plenty of interpretations so be sure to establish your own set of rules before you start playing.
