159 Nations and 39 million people play Handball, widely known as Team Handball in the United States. Many people link elements of basketball, soccer and lacrosse to the sport. Because of this, it is fast, physical and exciting. Competition involves two teams with six players and one goalie each. Teams also face off on a court approximately 66 by 131 feet. Players dribble, pass and shoot a ball into a goal. It is a very fast, exciting and aggressive player-on-player contact sport. SnapSports® designed the Bounceback surface to absorb player impact during aggressive play.
The tournament will showcase World All-Stars Vs. German All-Stars with some of the greatest names in Handball, such as Jackson Richardson, HANS Wislander and MIRZA DZOMBA, to name a few. This is an event not to miss.
“We are really excited to have our SnapSports® athletic surfaces chosen above all others as the official flooring of USA Team Handball and to be part of such a world-class event.” Said Jorgen Moller – SnapSports.
