Wall Ball is a term used to describe a sport that was once known as Irish / American handball in which players use their hands to hit a small rubber ball against a wall such that their opponent cannot do the same without it touching the ground twice. The three versions are four-wall , three-wall and one-wall. Each version can be played either by two players (singles) or four players (doubles). The U.S. Wall Ball Association Inc. and Wall Ball World LLC is specific to the version played on one-wall.
Games in which a ball is hit or thrown have been referenced as far back as Homer and ancient Egypt. A game similar to wall ball was played by Northern and Central Americans from 1500 BC,
