Spent a bit of time in elementary school in Canada playing European handball. It's a ton of fun to play, I have to say. It was part of the regular rotation of sports they'd have us play during the year. Maybe two-three weeks or so.

All that said, it's not a great spectator sport. It's just one of those sports that will never catch on in the US. Very popular within its Scandinavian and other northern European niche area, not a lot of growth potential.

Evidently indoor volleyball is a game that is growing quickly in pockets. It should be a big sport at Rio.
