Handball is a team sport that involves two teams of seven players each. Each team has a goalkeeper meaning the teams each have six outfield players. The game is played by passing of the ball to the goal of the opposing team by other team. The game is played in two halves of 30 minutes each and the team which scores the most goals becomes the winner. Handball is often played on a court of 40 by 20 meters with a goal in the center of each end.
The goals which are surrounded by a six meter zone have a goalkeeper who is the only player allowed and the goals must only be scored by throwing the ball from outside the zone or while jumping into it. The game is both played indoors or outside on the field sometimes at the beach (beach handball).
