HANDBALL SIZE GUIDE & CHART

WHAT SIZE HANDBALL BALL DO I NEED?

Handball balls come in a range of different sizes and it’s important that players use the correct size ball to maximise both enjoyment and performance. Using a ball that is too big for example, can prove frustrating if you don’t have the size and strength to catch, handle and throw it efficiently. Practising with a ball that’s regulation size for your gender/age can also help you to transfer skills acquired in training, directly to a competitive match.

Finding the right size handball isn’t always easy, however, which is why we’ve put together this easy to understand handball size guide that includes visual handball size charts.

What size handball should you buy?

The size of handball used in regulation matches depends on the age and gender of the players. The charts and tables below outline the criteria, making it easy for you to choose the correct size.
