Monterey Park, CAEdit
Chinese handball was huge in the Monterey Park, CA, area when I was young (as described in "Variants"). Schools there had a large Asian population, so as a kid I assumed that Chinese handball had literally been introduced by the Chinese kids; but in fact it must have been imported by kids whose families had moved from the New York City area. Learning to put spin on the ball was everything--kind of like what differentiates table tennis from regular tennis. --Dsewell 01:46, 10 January 2006 (UTC)
This game is played pretty heavily today by kids in Philly, although we call it "Chink". It's all about putting slice on the ball by creating back spin so you can get those low shots. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 15:51, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
Some more modalitiesEdit
The article Wallball has been sent to AfD, here. It looks to me like it is simply Chinese handball#Australian variation under another name; maybe a merge is in order instead of deletion? — SMcCandlish Talk⇒〈°⌊°〉 Contribs. 02:13, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
Bay Area, CAEdit
I’ll let someone else do further research on this, but here’s a lead: A quite-similar game, simply called “handball,” is played in Northern California with a bouncy rubber playground ball, likely a big, red one (sometimes the medium yellow one) manufactured by Mikasa. —Wiki Wikardo 07:42, 11 May 2012 (UTC)
To add to articleEdit
To add to article:
1) why "Chinese" is part of the name of this sport
2) a photo
- The sport does seem to exist. I trimmed down the article to remove the more dubious content. Ten Pound Hammer • (What did I screw up now?) 19:31, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
