WHAT IS HANDBALL?
Handball, also known as Team Handball and Olympic Handball, began in the late nineteenth century in Denmark. Handball games last for two periods of 30 minutes each, between two handball teams of 6 outfield players and a goalkeeper. When receiving the ball players within 3 steps must either shoot or pass the ball. After 3 seconds/3 steps, the player must dribble the ball. The winning team is the team who manages to score most goals.
