Handball was originated in the late 19th century in Northern Europe and Germany. It is a team sport in which two teams with seven players each pass a ball using their hands. Each team has to make goals by throwing the ball from outside the zone. The sport is usually played indoors, but outdoor games exist.
Handball is usually played on a court that is 40 by 20 meters. The equipment you need to play handball is a ball and two goals. One game usually lasts for an hour. There is a 15 minute break after 30 minutes.
Actions directed mainly at the opponent and not the ball, such as holding, pushing, hitting, tripping, and jumping into opponent, as well as contact from the side or behind a player, or delaying the opponent's counterattack are all considered illegal and are penalties.
There are a few leagues for handball in Brazil. The leagues are international, national, and the Olympic league.
