Handball, Nelson

ITV Cymru / Wales - Posted 17-08-2016

American handball is in the Rio Olympics but did you know that a more older, Gaelic version of the game, is still played in Nelson in the Rhymney Valley. In Nelson teams play in what is considered to be the oldest three sided court in the UK   Could Wales be medal favourites if Gaelic handball were reintroduced to a future Olympics?
