Handball: Hands-on experience is hands-down the best way to go! (Okay, this joke is getting out of hand)

Handball was first introduced in the ESSC Multi-Sport League as a one-off sport and received rave reviews. Therefore, as of the Fall 2015 Season, Handball is now offered as its own League! The sport is similar to Indoor Soccer, except that you are using your hands with the aim of throwing the ball into the other team’s goal. This fast-paced game is just as much about strategy and teamwork as it is about skill. Goals can be scored at a rapid pace, with teams frequently scoring 20+ goals in a game. Also, there is no prerequisite for playing Handball as most people haven’t played since middle school (if ever).

After your game, meet up with your teammates and other players to enjoy exclusive food and drink specials at one of the ESSC's many Sponsor Bars around Edmonton!
