A handball game
Eton Fives is a form of the game of fives, a handball game played as doubles in a three-sided court. The first set of rules known for Eton Fives was formulated in 1877.

It’s a sport, a little bit like squash, but a gloved hand is used to hit the ball instead of a racket. It was originally played at Eton College against the wall of the chapel, hence its name and the slightly oddly shaped court it is played on.
