There are some who call handball "the perfect game." It's simple and fun to play, kind of a combination of basketball, soccer and netball. It is played indoors on a large court about the size of two basketball courts. At the each end of the court is a large net, like a soccer net, and the object of the game is simply to score more goals than the other team. Only three steps at most can be taken after catching a pass and then a player cannot hold on to the ball for more than three seconds without passing it.
Energetic, and high-scoring, handball is definitely a sport for athletes and spectators alike. Getting the ball ready to shoot can be attention-grabbing enough, but handball's greatest display comes when the best players in the world wind up. They can jump in the air and "uncoil their bodies like springs," with the resulting nature of the move propelling the ball up to speeds of 62 miles hour.
Handball is one of the most popular sports in the world, only second to soccer for men's teams and first in the world for women's team sports. Bloggers speaking about handball can be found at sites like ireland-handball.
