A game of ancient Irish origin which is much played by baseball
players and other athletes to keep in good condition during the winter
when most outdoor sports are impossible.
A regulation hand ball court has a back wall 30 feet high and 50 feet
wide. Each game consists of twenty-one "aces." The ball is 1-7/8
inches in diameter and weighs 1-5/8 ounces. The ball is served and
returned against the playing wall just as in many of the other indoor
games and is similar in principle to squash and rackets.
