Team Handball for Beginners

Team Handball is a summer Olympics sport played indoor on a 40 by 20 meters court. 1 goal is set at both very end of the court inside a 6-meter crease.

7 players by side are allowed on court at a time (6 court players and 1 goalie).

In Offense, the ball is moving fast between teammates, everyone is driving into the defense, trying to take advantage of the court, giving as much space as possible to other teammates, making great scoring opportunity by jumping inside the crease and throwing before to land. The only ways to lose the ball is offence is by making a mistake, or missing your shot.

In Defense, everyone must be committed to protect the crease and their goalie from a 6 meters shot. Defenseman must move his legs fast to stay in front of other clever and quick opponent. Defenseman use all his body to block and /or stop the opponents. 

There is a great deal of physical contact and end-to-end action involving high jumps, powerful throws and spectacular agility.

Team Handball is known as being the fastest ball sports 🙂
