About this book

At the end of the 20th century, beach handball started capturing the attention of more and more people worldwide. Beach handball combines elements of indoor handball with free, creative game actions, the benefits of the sun, the beach, and the joy of playing outside. 

This book familiarizes readers with the philosophy and underlying concept of beach handball. Using a holistic teaching approach, it also demonstrates the advantages of this sport for beginners. For the benefit of coaches and teachers, the book contains tips on coaching behavior, organizing training, and how to design training/teaching sessions in a methodical didactic way. Numerous photos and streamable videos support putting theory into practice. 

As officials and referees are instrumental in the general development of the game, they have also been given due consideration in this work. Overall, this is a comprehensive introduction to a new sport covering all the information anyone needs to start playing beach handball.
