For almost every association in existence today, there was a defining moment when a group of people banded together for a common purpose or interest and decided that they would make a change for the better of society. For us, that common purpose is the enrichment and advancement of our community through the sport of Big Blue Handball.
We are proud to introduce to you The United States Wall Ball Association!
The USWA is a non-profit organization made up of individuals and existing handball organizations that have united to assist in the development and advancement of big blue handball and simultaneously inspire our community with a core focus in health and wellness. The term “wall ball” was created to define what we know of as Irish/American handball. As you may know, there is currently a sport recognized in the Olympics as the sport of handball, but is played completely different from what we know of as big blue handball. In addition, there are many variations to our sport which include one-wall, three-wall, four-wall, small ball, pump ball, black ball, and big blue handball. Therefore, to avoid confusion with the Olympic sport of team handball, the term “wall ball” will be used to describe the various versions of our sport which utilize nothing more than your hands, a ball and a wall to execute.
The United States Wall Ball Association is most dedicated to meeting the needs of our members, supporters, players, youth and community. If you have any questions, concerns, comments and/or suggestions please email us at: email@example.com

Please join us to celebrate the uniting of the longest existing handball organizations in NYC! Our mission for the sport of wall ball, our community and especially our youth is the ongoing pursuit of integrity, loyalty, pride, courage, fairness, self discipline, good sportsmanship, personal responsibility, leadership, respect and most of all UNITY.
