[1] Stoop ball is a fun activity; handball is a knuckle busting sport.

I like the hand-to-hand combat aspect of handball, and it's probably the best "street game." But if you've got a wall, and a bigger space to work with, I think paddleball is a better "city game."

Punchball was my favorite schoolyard game at PS 21 in the 70s.
