 Alternative equipment as a didactic resort in a handball session is a creative solution to the lack of resources, which, unfortunately, are suffered by many teachers and trainers who dedicate themselves to teaching this sport. It is a novel way of contributing to the development of the multiple waste products that our society produces. Also, and related to different fields (formation, spare time and recreation, training, etc.) the creation and construction of equipment which is not the same as is usually used, facilitates, amongst other things, the approach of possible practitioners of this sport: since they begin from other angles. Finally, in this article we show some of the possibilities of application of the type of equipment to one of the fields previously mentioned that of sports training.
