 TRANSCRIPTION

Ninh explains the RULES of Handball Handball, otherwise known as Team Handball or Olympic Handball, is a game that’s a mixture of basketball, soccer, and ice hockey. Handball is played with two teams of 14, with 7 players taking to the court at any one time.This includes one goal keeper and 6 field players.The objective of the game is for your team to score more goals than the opposing team.To score a goal, a player must throw the ball into the goal. These goals at 3m wide x 2m high. The ball must completely cross the goal line and the shooting player must not step into the crease for a goal to count. The goal crease is a 6m radius around the goal, and the free throw line is a 9m radius.The court itself 40m x 20m. The game starts by the team that wins the coin toss with a throw off. Once a team has possession of the ball, a player must not hold onto it for more than three seconds, nor must a player take any more than three steps. Failure to do this results in a free throw being awarded to the opposing team. You can pass the ball directly between teammates, or dribble the ball like in basketball, where you bounce the ball up and down repeatedly whilst in motion. Players must make a conscious effort to move the ball up the court and try to score. If the referee decides that the team is making no attempt to shoot, this is known as ‘passive play’ and the ball is awarded to the other team. The opposing team will try and stop you by blocking the ball with their hands and arms, making frontal body contact, and forming walls with other team mates to force errors from the attacking team. A defender has to be careful here, as they cannot pull the ball out of the attacking players hands, nor can they push or jump into them. Any of these infractions results in a free throw being awarded to the other team. The game is played in 2 x 30 minute halves, for a total playing time of 60 minutes. Highest score at the end of time wins. If the game ends in a tie, up to 2 x 5 minute overtime periods are played to determine the winner. If the game is still tied after two overtime periods, it goes to a penalty shootout just like soccer. Handball is an easy sport to understand, but there’s a few other things you’ll need to know before you play or watch a game. For example:Goal Crease The goal crease (or goal area) is the exclusive domain of the goalkeeper. All players have to be aware that only the goalkeeper is allowed in the goal crease. If an attacking player steps into the goal crease and scores a goal, the goal is disallowed. If a defending player steps into the goal crease to stop someone shooting, a 7 metre throw is awarded to the attacking team. Seven Metre Throw This is the equivalent of a penalty kick in soccer. If a defender steps into the goal crease to prevent someone shooting, or has prevented a legitimate chance to score, a 7 metre throw is awarded. A player lines up at the 7 metre line and gets to shoot once against the goalkeeper. All shots that go into the goal counts. Dribble Fault Just like the double dribble violation in basketball, a player cannot dribble the ball, stop and then proceed to dribble again. In Handball this is known as a dribble fault, and possession of the ball is awarded to the other team. Progressive Punishment Just like in soccer, if you start committing fouls, you will firstly be warned with a yellow card. If you proceed to foul again, you are handed a two minute suspension from the game like in ice hockey. A third foul draws another two minute suspension and If you foul a fourth time, you are shown a red card and you are ejected from the game.You can also be shown a straight red for serious offences. Substitution There are unlimited substitutions in Handball, and all substitutes must cross over on the substitution line.

HANDBALL

Handball (also known as team handball, Olympic handball, European team handball, European handball, or Borden ball) is a teamsport in which two teams of seven players each (six outfield players and a goalkeeper) pass a ball using their hands with the aim of throwing it into the goal of the other 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 40 by 20 meters (131 by 66 ft), with a goal in the center of each end. The goals are surrounded by a 6-meter zone where only the defending goalkeeper is allowed; goals must be scored by throwing the ball from outside the zone or while "jumping" into it. The sport is usually played indoors, but outdoor variants exist in the forms offield handball and Czech handball (which were more common in the past) and beach handball. The game is fast and high-scoring: professional teams now typically score between 20 and 35 goals each, though lower scores were not uncommon until a few decades ago. Body contact is permitted, the defenders trying to stop the attackers from approaching the goal.

The game was codified at the end of the 19th century in northern Europe and Germany. The modern set of rules was published in 1917 in Germany, and had several revisions since. The first international games were played under these rules for men in 1925 and for women in 1930. Men's handball was first played at the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin as outdoors, and the next time at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich as indoors, and has been an Olympics sport since. Women's team handball was added at the 1976 Summer Olympics.

The International Handball Federation was formed in 1946, and as of 2013 has 174 member federations. The sport is most popular in continental Europe, whose countries have won all medals but one in men's world championships since 1938, and all women's titles until 2013, when Brazil broke the series. The game also enjoys popularity in the Far East, North Africa and parts of South America.

 

There are 14 players in each team in handball, with seven on the pitch at any one time. The playing positions in handball are as follows:

 

Goalkeeper — the player who defends the goal with just about every part of the body! The goalkeeper is the only player who can touch the ball with their feet.

Centre — a creative handball player who directs play in both defense and attack. Also known as the ‘playmaker’ and sets up the tactics and the players in shooting positions.

 

Left and right backs — usually the largest players on the handball team. When defending, they try to block shots, and in attack they are the long-range handball shooters.

 Circle runner — the creative force in attack and disruption to opponents when defending. The circle runner is quick and gets in among opposing defenders to either create openings for teammates or to get into a good scoring position themselves.

Left and right wingers — the fast players who patrol the sides of the court. They counter opposing wingers and in attack look to create openings for others, or shoot from the more difficult angles.

 

Substitutes — substitution is allowed at any moment, without limit and without time stoppage. There are seven substitutes on the sidelines for each handball side. But a substitute can’t play until the player they are swapping for is off the court.

The officials — there are four handball officials: a scorekeeper; a timekeeper, and two referees who control the play at close quarters.
