The origins of handball can be traced back to medieval times but it was in 1906 that the rules of modern handball were first created in Denmark. The game is hugely popular in Northern and Eastern Europe but is played around the world. The governing body of the game is the International Handball Federation, who also organise the World Championships.
Handball was invented by Nicolaj Ernst in 1897 in Nyborg, in Denmark. It is an indoor game played between two teams, containing a total of 7 players each. In the game, the players pass the ball with their hands and try to score by throwing the ball into the goal of the opponent team.
The other variations of the game, such as Mini Handball, Beach Handball or Wheelchair Handball, are all based on the same fundamental rules of the game, although both facilities and rules can be adapted. Players Handball is a team sport for two squads of 7 players (six field players and a goalkeeper). Equipment needed
Handball involves passing of ball from one player hand to another progressively with the objective of scoring goals. Hence, there are certain rules of passing the ball among the players. A player cannot take more than three steps while running towards the goal holding the ball, whereas landing after catching the ball will not be counted as a step.
The goal post is 2mts in height and 3mts in width. A 6mts line known as d-line separates the goal keeper from rest of the players who are not allowed to cross the line. A mark is provided at a distance of 7mts from the goal post from which penalty shots are taken in case any foul occurs during the handball match.
