There are three main codes of handball. They are dictated by the size of the Court used.

The most popular game is the 40×20 Game or “International” Game. This game is played by 2 (Singles) or 4 (Doubles) people. Men use the International 40×20 Ball. While the Women use the “Dark Blue” version of this ball.

The second most popular game is the 60×30 Game, which is the Irish national game. It is played with the 60×30 Ball, sometimes known as the Half Solid or the Alley Cracker.

Next is the One Wall Ball. As the name suggests it is played against one wall and the court is marked out with chalk or lines. It has become a very popular game in the last year with promotion of the game.
