Handball Court

Dimensioned plan drawing of a Handball Court measured with length and width of the various court lines

The Handball Court consists of a Handball Goal on each side, a series of distance markings, a halfway line, a Free Throw line, and a goal area. A Handball Court can have 1, 3, or 4 walls depending on the venue. Three walled Handball Courts provide one side for an audience to experience the game. A Handball Court with 3 walls is not standardized and are less common. A Handball Court with one wall increases the amount spectators that can view the game and are less expensive to construct than 3 or 4 wall Handball Courts.
