Beach Handball - 2015 National Games

Beach Handball

Beach Handball is also called Sandball, and is played between two teams, who try to pass and bounce a ball, and score by throwing it into the goal post of the opposing team. It’s almost handball but played on a beach. Two or three sets of matches are played and the team winning their second set of matches win.  The other difference is the scoring; a goalkeeper’s goal is worth two points while that by an outfield player is 1 point.  

 

History

Beach Handball was born in eighties on the beaches of Italy and has a long way to go before it’s an Olympic event.
