About Mediterranean Games - Handball

Consult here the fixed timetable for every sports competition and the confirmed calendar for the Mediterranean Games.

Handball is a team sport 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. This is achieved through passes and, in general, through plays, which end up with a shoot. Each team consists of seven players—six outfield players and a goalkeeper. The sport is usually played indoors and is characterized by being quite fast and including body contact, as the defenders try to stop the attackers from approaching the goal. Goals are scored quite frequently—teams typically score more than 20 goals each. The space of the area is reserved for the goalkeeper. Any outfield player is allowed to enter into it deliberately or to take advantage.

Handball made its debut in the Mediterranean Games in the edition of 1967 in Tunis (Tunisia).
