What is beach handball ?
Beach Handball is a spin on traditional indoor European Handball, a sport that is hugely popular on most continents of the world and is played in the Olympic Games.
Teams consists of 8 players, with 4 on court at once. High skill and fitness levels are necessary because of the sand court, which measures 27 x 12m, including a 6m goal area at either end.
Beach Handball is an extremely spectator-friendly sport as "trick shots" are worth double points, making the already fast-paced game spectacular to watch.
A 360 degree spin shot and a Kempa (alley-oop to another player who catches the ball and then releases in air) are both ways to score two points instead of one.
