Handball has similarities with both football and basketball. It's a fast moving game which requires strength, speed and agility.
A handball team is comprised of seven players, who work together to move the ball up the court and attempt to score a goal.
The fast pace of the game results in many shots being taken, and teams can often score over 20 goals each.
Like basketball, players rely on feints, body swerves, and huge leaps in the air to pass, control the ball and shoot.
Unlike basketball, physical contact is allowed and legal body-checks can sometimes see players crashing to the ground!
Handball is a hugely popular sport across Europe. If you fancy a go yourself, England Handball is the best place to start.
