Handball is a team sport, which in its modern form originated in 19th century in Northern Europe, while its current rules were published in 1917 in Germany. In handball two teams consisting of seven players each compete to get the higher score by throwing the ball using hands into the goal.

International and Regional Handball Competitions
As in most modern sports, there are separate handball competitions for men and women. The first international tournament for men was held in 1925, while the first international women’s event was held only five years layer – in 1930. Today handball is part of Summer Olympic Games, where it is played since 1936 by men and since 1976 by women.
Handball is regulated by IHF, an international federation which was created in 1946 and is now currently located in Basel, Switzerland. It consists of six continental federations in Asia, Africa, North America, Europe, Oceania, and South and Central America, with a total of 209 national associations. IHF organizes major national competitions, including world championships which are held every two years. There are also international events for club teams.
As the sport is popular mainly in Europe, it is also reflected on the professional scene, which is heavily dominated by Europeans. Just take a look at the history of World Championships – Europeans won all medals in men competitions since 1938, while in women’s competitions only two medals were received by non-European countries – Brazil and Korea.
