The rules and descriptions of the different handball disciplines are linked below:

Handball is a fascinating game played throughout five continents by over 180 countries and 19 million people all ages, worldwide. First introduced as an outdoor sport during the 1939 Summer Olympics program, handball has since been an indoor sport in the Summer Olympics program since 1972. 

Beach Handball's first official rules were officially recognized by the International Handball Federation (IHF) in 1994. The sport will be featured in the 2013 World Games while being considered to debut as a separate event in the 2024 Olympic Games. The IHF and other continental federations actively promote beach handball through grassroots and international competitions understanding that some athletes will specialize in beach handball while others will cross-over into indoor handball.

Mini Handball is a unique version of the game for young kids in which they learn by playing, engaging in healthy fitness activities, and establishing some basic technical and tactical competencies in low-competitive environment. It is more than a miniature version of the adult game. It is a true sport philosophy and a great gateway for all children to become physically active, practice teamwork, make friends, acquire multi-level transferable skills, and have tons of fun!

Street Handball is the newest addition to handball offerings. It was introduced in 1997 in Denmark. It was invented and promoted by famous players and coaches like Lasse Boesen, Ole B. Andersen and Torben Sorensen. This game takes to the streets and parks, dropping all barriers and allowing participants of all ages and ability levels to enjoy handball in its purest, backyard fashion with minimal rules and equipment requirements.
