About Fives

 

Fives is a game of handball where the player, using padded gloves, hits a golf-ball sized ball made of a composition of cork and rubber against concrete rendered walls. The courts are three-walled and approximately the same size as a squash court.

 

There are three variants of Fives played in the UK, the most challenging of which is Eton Fives, a doubles game where the court's configuration contains several obstacles. This is the version played by the Aldenham Club. More detail may be obtained from the Eton Fives Association on www.etonfives.co.uk
