Sarhadchi Arena will host the Handball Competitions which will be held over a 6-day period. Handball is a team sport in which two teams of seven players each pass a ball using their hands with the aim of throwing it into the goal of the other team. Athletes will compete for the gold medal in the men’s and women’s tournament. Handball is played on a 40m long and 20m wide court. The goals at either end are 3m wide and 2m high.
The court is divided into two halves, with each goal surrounded by two 'D' shaped areas. The inner D, at a distance of 6m from the goal, is defined by its dark blue color and is called the goal area, which only the goalkeeper may enter; the outer D, defined by a dotted line at a distance of 9m from the goal, marks the free-throw line.
