Move over beach volleyball.  There’s a new game in town.  At least, through this weekend.

The first Annual Open Beach Handball Championship is happening Saturday and Sunday with both American and International players in attendance.

According to its website, “This first annual Open Beach Handball Championship is open to everyone and is the start of a wonderful new legacy for Beach Handball in the USA.”

The Gulf Shores Mayor is sponsoring the medals and trophies for all three divisions: Mens, Women and Youth.  It’s a sport that is unlike beach volleyball, even though there is a net placed for a team to score a winning shot.  Team play began this morning on the Gulf Shores beach and continues Sunday.
