What is Team Handball?

See what all the buzz is about! Professional Matches


Handball, or Team Handball as it is known in North America, is a Summer Olympic sport played on a 20m x 40m court with goals at each end.  The ball is passed between team mates at high speed and attacking players use fast counter attacks and clever moves to overcome the defence and create opportunities to score.  Only the goal keeper is allowed in the 6m goal area that surrounds the goal.


The final confrontation between shooter and goal keeper adds to the dramatic outcome of the attack.  Handball is reputed as being the fastest ball sport.  There is a great deal of physical contact and end-to-end action involving high jumps, powerful throws and spectactular agility.
