Sport: handball

Handball is a team sport in which two teams of seven players each pass a ball using their hands with the aim of throwing it into the goal of the opposing team. A standard match consists of two periods of 30 minutes, and the team that scores more goals wins. Modern handball is played on a court of 40 by 20 metres, with a goal in the middle of each end. The goals are surrounded by a 6-metre zone where only the defending goalkeeper is allowed; goals must be scored by throwing the ball from outside the zone or while diving into it.
