Bouncing Back Handball Festival 2019

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse in partnership with New Farm Neighbourhood Centre

Join us for the Bouncing Back Handball Festival this May. Battle it out against others while you have fun playing this Aussie school yard classic. All players are welcome (and we encourage you to dress up!), no matter how long it’s been since the schoolyard.

A true community and family-friendly event, the Festival will also feature face-painting, a cake stall, jumping castle, sausage sizzle, arts activities and more!

Registrations open from 8:45am on the day with the competition running from 9am – 1pm. Plus it’s FREE to play!

The Bouncing Back Handball Festival is an initiative of the New Farm Neighbourhood Centre and Communify QLD, and supported by the Patrons of New Farm and Brisbane City Council.

2019’s Handball Festival also concludes National Volunteer Week, and we can’t wait to celebrate with all our local volunteers on the courts.
