Goal shot in a men's beach handball game
is a team sport
where two teams pass and bounce or roll a ball, trying to throw it in the goal of the opposing team. The game is similar to team handball
, but it is played on sand instead of in a sports hall; because the ball loses most of its bounce on sand, there is little to no dribbling
, and players instead perform more passing as the rule of traveling
Matches are played in two or three sets, depending on when a team wins their second set of the game. If teams are tied at the end of a regular set then the teams will play for a golden goal. The teams will try to win a jump ball and the first goal wins the set. If the teams are tied at the end of 2 sets then the teams will participate in a tie breaker. The tie break involves a goalie throwing the ball to his/her own player while that player attempts to score one-on-one with the opposing goalie. During regular play, if the goalkeeper scores a goal this counts as two points, compared to a normal goal scored by an outfield player which counts as 1 point. Creative or spectacular goals, such as 360 degree jumps and alley-oops, are awarded with two points, as well as inflights and 6 meter throws. Read more...
