The size of a handball ball is small enough to be controlled or thrown with only one hand. But is it allowed to play the ball using two hands at the same time? What’s legal? What’s not? Let’s find out!


A player can use both hands simultaneously to…

– Pass the ball;
– Shoot at goal;
– Receive and control a pass;
– Block an opponent shot;
– Control the ball after dribbling it.

A player cannot use both hands simultaneously to…

– Dribble the ball while running or standing;
– Roll the ball on the floor.

If a player makes one of these ilegal moves, he/she will commit a foul and the opponent will receive the ball possession on the same place where the move occurred (free throw).
