About This Page

Handball is a physical and fast sport of intense physical contact, with shots being thrown at speeds approaching 100 km per hour. It is played indoors on a 40m x 20m court with seven players (one goalkeeper + six court), which speeds up the game even more. The object is to score more goals than the opponents by throwing the ball into a D-shaped net. Handball athletes are known for their speed, agility, physical strength and stamina.
