Handball

Ballon de handball.svg

Handball, known as team handball in the United States, is a team sport played between two teams of 7 players with an oval on a rectangular field 40 meters long and 20 meters wide with goals at either end. The team in possession of the ball (the offense) attempts to advance down the field by running with, dribbling or passing the ball.

The team that has scored the most points by the end of the game wins. The team can score by shooting a goal.

American football evolved from early forms of rugby (particularly rugby union) and association football (soccer), with the first game played on November 6, 1869. Rule changes from 1880 on by Walter Camp included the snap, 11-a-side teams and downs; further rule changes legalized the forward pass and created the neutral zone along the width of the football.

Today, Handball is one of the most popular sport at the world, where the Handball-Bundesliga (HB) is the most popular league.
