The International Handball Federation (IHF) has modified its rules regarding women’s uniforms, allowing them to wear crop tops and tank tops in place of bikini bottoms. This action came after a global grassroots campaign against objectification of women and girls. Norwegian Talitha Stone spearheaded the global campaign, launching a petition at change.org. The petition garnered more than 61,000 signatures and led to changes in the rules for handball competitions.

The game is played between two teams of seven players. Each half lasts for thirty minutes and there is an intermission. It’s a fast-paced and physical sport, with the players not wearing protective gear. While they may not be able to kick the ball with their hands, they do use their entire body to move the ball. A goalkeeper is the only person allowed to kick the ball. There are nine divisions of handball competitions in the World Cup and the Olympic Games.

The rules of handball are very simple. In a 40 x 20 metre court, there’s a goal in the center of each end. There is a near-semicircular area that surrounds the goal. The zone and crease are defined by six and nine metres, while the free-throw line and the middle line belong to both halves. The goal is a circular area that is two metres high and three metres wide. It is also secured to the floor or wall.

The main differences between team handball competitions and regular handball games are the number of players and the size of the court. The ball used in both games is 58-60 cm in diameter and weighs approximately 425 grams.

The game will require a lot of concentration from all players, so make sure you are well-prepared.
