The 2012 Beach Handball World Championships was a twelve-team tournament in both men's and women's beach handball, held at Muscat, Oman from July 8–13, 2012.[1] It was the fifth edition of the event. Matches were played in sets, the team that won two sets was the winner of a match. When teams were equal in points the head-to-head result would be decisive.

Brazil won both editions, the men and women competition.[2][3]

Format[edit]

The twelve teams were split into two groups of six teams. After playing a round-robin, the three top ranked team advanced to the Main Round. Every team kept the points from preliminary round matches against teams who also advanced. In the main round every team had 3 games against the opponents they did not face in the preliminary round. The top four teams advanced to the Semifinals. The three bottom ranked team from each preliminary round group were packed into one group. The points won against the teams who were also in this group were valid. Every team played three games and after those round there were placement matches from 7th–12th place.

The draw was held on May 14.[4][5]
