WHAT IS HANDBALL?
Team handball is a fast-paced team game that originated in Scandinavia. Two teams of seven players each try to score goals by throwing the ball into the opponent's goal. The team who scores the most goals wins. Handball combines elements of many other sports including basketball, softball, and soccer.
