A vibrant Winchester Fives club in the heart of the city.
Fives is a handball game. Its origins are a little obscure but one theory is that it began, some centuries ago, when boys used the buttresses and walls of a church and hit the ball with their hands against the walls - the angles of the buttresses and walls lending variety to the game. It might then have been a game played as singles or doubles.
