For example, one group may play in a square of four while the next school over, the game is played in a straight line of six squares, radically altering the game.
In addition, some variations of the game allow for the head or feet to be used to return the ball.
As a result, this article only covers the most common rules and is not representative of every variation.
In other words, the rules may vary between schools, but basic rules usually remain the same. Due to the rules of handball varying from school to school, the following variations have developed:.
Generally, in younger age groups, if the ball lands on any line separating two opponents on any bounce, it is treated as if it were a line and the point 'replayed'.
However, depending on school or institution, lines can be treated as if they are a part of an opponent's square, thus the game will always continue if the ball hits the line.
In instances where the ball may fall on a line separating two squares on the full, the square that the majority of the ball bounces in is consider to be where the ball landed.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, some games will deem a ball to be 'out' if it hits any line that does not border another square.
In this variation, commonly known as ' rebounds' , the ball can bounce off, hit or roll along any other surface near the court as long as it is returned to the court.
In this game, the ball is only considered to bounce when it hits the floor of a player's square. In some instances, a grab is considered to be any motion when the ball is held.
In others, a grab is outlawed however a ' cradle ', a low bouncing shot where the ball is balanced in the palm, is allowed. In some games, especially for lower aged groups, grabbing the ball may be allowed.
In other versions a player may commit a ' ghost ' without repercussions, where a play attempts to put another player off by moving any part of their body near the ball as the player attempts to hit it.
Readiness of the players: In other styles, the player must only be in the square to be considered 'ready'.
Finally, in some versions a player may serve at any time, as long as they call 'ever-ready' as a warning to players to prepare to commence the point.
In most games, as serve is conducted by the player it the highest square throwing the ball into the other square.
In other variations, the player must hit the ball out of there hand to make a serve. It is common in games that a player call ' decent ' on a serve that not easy to hit, and the point is retaken.
In the majority of games the ' first-fault ' style is used, where - when a player gets out and play continues or multiple outs occur - the play is stopped and the first person to get out is deemed to be out.
In other games, ' two-play-on-play ' is used, where the point may continue if two hits by two other players occur.
Even though each part of the court is referred to as a 'square', a square can be any shape or size.
Its edges or 'lines' can be marked with any material, including: Commonly, the court is either a bitumen or concrete surface.
In popular culture, handball has grown popularity in the current ' meme ' culture. Gaelic handball known in Ireland simply as handball ;     Irish: Handball is played in a court, or "alley".
The first alley of this size was built in Ireland in This smaller size is now the standard in the international version of the game, but both alleys are still used in the Gaelic game, with two separate championships run by the GAA in the two codes.
The objective of a game is to score a set total of points before your opponent does. Points are only scored by the person serving the ball.
In other words, if a player wins a rally but did not serve at the start of that rally they only win the right to serve, and thus the chance to score after a subsequent rally.
The serving player has two opportunities to hit the ball, from the "service area" between the two parallel lines , off the "front wall" and across the "short line" which is located exactly halfway down the court from the front wall.
Players take turns at hitting the ball off the "front wall" before the ball bounces twice on the floor of the court following their opponent's previous shot.
Most handball games take place in a four-walled court but there are also three-walled and one-wall versions of the game.
Handball-like games have originated in several places at different times. Hieroglyphs in the temple of Osiris in Egypt portray priests taking part in a game very similar to handball.
