Have a Go at Handball

Handball is on its way to Downham!

You may have had the opportunity to watch this Olympic sport for the first time last summer. Well, now handball is coming to Downham Market to give the community a chance to take part in a taster session to ‘have a go’ and learn more about this great sport.

Handball is a fast-paced, ball throwing game played on a court about the size of a netball court.

The taster session will be held at:

Downham Market Leisure Centre
Saturday 16th March
2.30 – 4.30 pm.

Minimum age is 8 years old and the session will be taken by a qualified coach and regular player from Norwich Handball Club. All equipment is supplied just turn up in suitable clothing and trainers. £2 per person or £5 per family.

For further information please contact Frances Rayner on 07802448836.
