Ever heard of Ourania, the ancient sport that's considered a precursor to handball?
Homer described the game in The Odyssey:
"They took at once in their hands the lovely ball, which Polybos, with cunning art, had wove from purple wool.
One cast this up to heaven to reach the sparkling clouds, bent hard back; the other then sprang high up in the air
and caught it nimbly, ere his foot touched ground again. And after they had tried to toss the ball on high,
danced light as air upon the all-nourishing earth, in position often changed."
Sure sounds like handball to us!
