Sport presentation

A team sport contested by two teams of seven players using a ball on a rectangular court divided into two halves. Players manoeuvre the ball using only their hands with the aim of hurling it into the opposing team’s goal. Teams are usually composed of a goalkeeper and six outfield players; usually two wingmen (left and right), two backcourts (left and right), a centre backcourt, and a pivot. The team that scores the most goals wins the match.
