The basic dimensions of the handball court

Before you start out playing handball, here’s a few handball basics, including the dimensions of the court and the ball used.

The handball court — measures 40m x 20m (131.25ft x 65.62ft).

The handball goal — 2m (6.56ft) tall and 3m (9.84ft) wide.

6m line — the dividing line between goalkeepers and the rest of the players.

7m line — where penalty shots are taken following fouls on players with a clear shooting chance on goal.

9m line — an arcing dotted line extending from the goal. It marks where an attacking team resumes play after being fouled inside the line. Also known as the ‘free-throw line’.

Halfway line — where the game is started from at the beginning of the game and after half-time, and also for restarting after a goal is scored.

Substitution line — where players must leave the court when a substitution is made.

Goal area in handball — the area in which the goalkeeper operates. Players can jump in this area so long as they release the ball before they land.

For the men’s game: the ball is 58 to 60cm (22.83 to 23.62in) in circumference and is 425 to 475g (15 to 16.75oz) in weight.
