Although a simple version of this game has been played in the north of Europe since the end of the 19th century, it was not until 1928 that handball had its own International Federation. Since then, handball participation has been growing, becoming one of the most widely played sports on earth. There is a reason for that: handball is easy to understand and to play.

Matches are divided into two periods of 30 minutes each. There are two teams of seven athletes each that take, throw, pass and dribble the ball with their hands with a clear object in mind: scoring the most goals to win the match. Each team has 14 players. The court is 40 m long and 20 m wide.
